11:40 – Wawrinka v Cilic
Rankings are 21 and 14. Head to heads are 4-0 to Wawrinka. However only one of those matches was on a hard court and that was in 2006.
Wawrinka had a struggle against Sela in the semi final and at times was pretty awful. He came through in 3 sets.
Cilic has had a couple of dodgy sets this week where he was taken to tie breaks ( he lost the tb in the second round to Granollers) but apart from those he has played well and been fairly comfortable.
Cilic’s serve will be the main ingredient today and if it is flowing as it was in the semi then there will only be one winner.
Back Cilic on serve. If he breaks serve back him and green up when he wins the first set.
I’m expecting a straight sets win for Cilic.
