sets. Monfils led 4-2 in the opening set which he lost 7-5 and after sharing early breaks in the second set it was Wawrinka who closed out the set in a tie break.

Cilic has not lost a set so far. In the last round he only played a set and a half as Anderson retired when 3-0 down in set 2.  He should be slightly fresher than his opponent.

Back Wawrinka if he is broken.
