Marin Cilic VS Viktor Troicki match analysis

Contrary to what others think, Troicki is beatable here. Cilic will be hugely boosted by the win over Melzer and Troicki gave Nieminen enough chances, so I can see him giving the Croat some opportunities too. After all, the head to head record speaks for itself. Marin Cilic leads 5-1 and if you judge the two players on pure talent, he definitely has more of it than the Serbian player. Of course, he is not playing in better form right now, but I can see that changing. The loss against Mayer is not so serious in my opinion. First of all, the German plays a really tricky game and varies his shots, which Troicki does not. And from the baseline, Cilic can produce the goods. On serve, they are more or less equal, although you have to give some edge to Cilic when it comes down to tight moments. And if he goes a set down, another set may follow quickly enough. Troicki will lose his great form sooner or later. And this is a perfect moment for that to happen and the odds are just too high in my opinion.
