Murray Advances, Faces Big (Serving) Test in Cilic

Andy Murray breezed by a defaulting Tipsarevic on Friday and now faces a solid clay court test in Marin Cilic. Cilic the number 13 seed has big serves, and solid game which will surely give Murray some challenges out there.

The 6 foot 6 inch Croat, is one of these kids on the rise. 2008 was a notable year for Cilic making it to the 4th round in Australia, 4th round at Wimbledon, Quarterfinals in Toronto, won New Haven, and made 3rd round at the U.S Open.

He can produce bomb serves with his lanky frame which makes him dangerous at any stage of the match.

Murray, who clearly isn't "at home" on clay has to be careful in this match if he wishes to continue onward. I'm not predicting it...But don't be surprised if we see a potential upset here. Cilic is a solid kid who we are going to see plenty more of in the future.

Other note - Roger Federer and Paul Henry Mathieu on tap today at the French!
Enjoy!

Murray is making some noticeable improvements out there on the clay isn't he!?!

Just won 7-5 7-6 6-1 very few mistakes from Murray in a close game. Watching Nadal now, he was so close to going 2 sets down to Sonderling!
