Cilic vs Kuznetsov by Lujav
ATP Marseille, quarterfinal, indoors, the match between Marin Cilic and Andrey Kuznetsov. This will be their third meeting, Marin is currently better with 2-0, one of them was in Moscow last year (indoors), Marin was better 62 61. Today, I expect a completely different result. Marin plays very bad in new season, he continued here with such a bad game, three sets against Haase who plays very bad on this surface isn't too good result for me so I don't know what to expect of Marin. Kuznetsov was very talented player, but the problem with "head" is his the biggest problem so 52. place is his currently the highest place on ATP rank. But this season, Kuznetsov showed that he plays finally fantastic tennis and the good results are here. He played in QF Doha, lost against Nadal in three sets, then 4R AO (Monfils 1-3), 1R Rotterdam after qualifications (excellent Troicki was better in three sets) and now in Marseille he was better than Pouille and Halys, two very easy victories. Kuznetsov is currently in the better form so I expect that he continues to play good tennis, Marin isn't on a high level, he has a lot of problems on service and on return so my prediction is Kuznetsov +3.5 g.
