Cilic vs Isner by Iniestaone

Cilic
VS
Isner
So Cilic finally did it: he won against Djokovic, in his 15th attempt. He is my favorite player so I am extremely happy for him but to be realistic, he didn't beat a good Djokovic. Not even a decent Djokovic. Nole looked at times more complacent than I've ever seen him, I have no idea what's going on.with him but Cilic looked shaky at times and I thought Djokovic was going to turn the match in the second set when Cilic was broken at 4-4 but he just couldn't serve out the set. It was a huge effort from Cilic but that's only because he has such a poor record to Djokovic and usually collapses.

 

Cilic had 7 aces in the first set and 2 double faults. He was serving at merely 55% and was broken once. He improved in the second, but still only managed to reach 63% first serve. Its understandable that he was unstable in parts of the match and I think he's overwhelmed by this win. I don't see him entering the court vs Isner fully focused on the task ahead. He pulled off what was for him a big mental achievement but Nole was truly at his worst at large parts of the match and was even weaker mentally. He didn't believe in his shot placement at all.

 

Isner was a giant on serve in the first set, he had 73% first serve, 7 aces and 0 double faults. His first serve percent dropped for each following set, 69% and 63%. He won 76% of the points on his first serve, but what's more impressive is that he won 73% on his second serve. He got worse and worse throughout the match, but Sock was serving very bad in the third and threw the match.

 

So many people are talking about Cilic's win vs Djokovic and I think its going to mess with his head. He'll need time to settle and he's facing an Isner who hasn't lost a first set yet in Paris. I can't see Cilic winning in straights, while I also can't see Isner winning any other set than the first one from what I saw vs Sock.

In the third paragraph it says "Isner was a giant on serve in the first set", its supposed to say "Isner was a giant on serve in the first set vs Sock". Accidentally deleted it

From what you're saying the bet should be 2-1 Cilic or Cilic to lose the first baut to win the match. Why taking only the first set?

@Khum because this is uncharted territory for Cilic, I don't know how his win vs Nole will affect him. He might lose this.

Ok :)
You've misleaded me with "I also can't see Isner winning any other set than the first one".
I think there's a decent probability for Isner to take the game. Usually, after beating one member of the Big3 comes the mental letdown. There are very few that succesfully managed this kind of a moment.
