Cilic vs Verdasco
Marin Cilic faces Fernando Verdasco in the start of ATP Queen's in London.
My tip is simple here- Cilic to win in straight sets. We know how good is Cilic on grass courts. He was in the finals in Queen's and Wimbledon last season with terrific performances, but didn't have the luck to win at least one of the trophies after two losses by Lopez and Federer. After the end of the clay season it's time for his favorite surface where he is dominant against almost everyone in the tour and Verdasco doesn't look a serious threat as a start. Fernando is brilliant on clay, even on hard courts he can be really dangerous, but on grass..He is just not a good grass-court player, especially in the last seasons. It's hard for him to make more than one or two wins in a row in the tournaments on that surface.
I am confident Cilic will win this match, but also I will try it in straight sets. Cilic' serves are like bombs and Verdasco is going to go from one side to the other watching his opponents aces. C'mon, even Tomic beat Verdasco in straight sets last week in Hertogenbosch. I won't talk about their previous meetings because only matches on grass are important here and their only match was in 2008.. maybe there will be a tie-break in the match, it depends how Verdasco will serve, but still believe Cilic will not drop a set in the start!
