Really liked what I saw from Chardy at times in his game against Ferrer. Have a great serve when he lets the arm loose, with nice power and placement. Some great rallies in the game and think Chardy held on nicely with good patience in those rallies against a Ferrer that always gets the ball back to the other side. Has been known for having too much up and downs but in that game he played solid overall.
Cilic had a rough time against Kukushkin in last round winning after 5 sets. Won a wopping 84% of his first serve points and I think that says a lot. Cilic is a bit too dependant on his serve to work and I think he will have a hard time in the rallies against a powerful player like Chardy.
Value is on Chardy for this one. He will face a very different opponent from his last match but if he can hold on to his nice basline play and returning I like Chardys chances. Cilic wont be easy to break, Kukushkin had 9 break chances in 5 sets, Donskoy 5 and Pella 1. Expect a tight game with Chardy as the winner. Even so I will go with the over play since I think we will see one or two tiebreaks and then anything can happen. Over 41,5 games is my pick.
