Their only previous meeting was earlier this month in a Davis Cup tie. Goffin won in 4 sets on a clay court.
This is a tricky one. Cilic has been serving well and whilst I expected him to take a set from Gasquet I was a little surprised that he beat him.
Goffin has had to work hard in this tournament. He only won his first round in a third set tie break and also needed 3 sets against Pella in the second round. I had not expected him to beat Wawrinka but he won in a third set tie break again.
Cilic is the stronger player on hard courts and will get a lot more easy points on serve. I can see this going to 3 sets so value is on Goffin. However I feel Cilic will be the one to progress to the next round.
Back Cilic at 2.00 or better.
