Wimby Day 11

Post by Graveller » Jul Fri 14, 2017 8:52 am

First set looked very promising, with Querrey coming back from 1-4 to win the TB...#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#But from 2-2 in the second, evet service game from Querrey was a struggle... the punch is gone, and serve became less dominating...#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#Cilic managed to break him twice in his last 5 service games.... Cilic-Querrey  6-7 6-4 *2-1#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#

And Grosse was just in time for a good, old-fashioned jinx

Cilic wins the 3rd set TB... Uphill battle now for Querrey who will need to make it into a 5set battle.

Cilic the advantage to serve first in Set 4.... if Querrey wants that advantage into the last set, he had to win this set with a TB, OR has to break Cilic TWICE in this set (incl in the last game of this set when leading 5-3 and Cilic serving).

(He cannot win this set on Cilic's serve unless he breaks him twice...)

Happy to oblige. I want Cilic in the final to halt Rojay's quest.

Querrey is serving so well my jinx is powerless.

lol

15:52 Sprinting diagonally across the court like a greyhound, Cilic runs down a drop shot and just caresses the ball gently over the net to leave Querrey stranded and break point down. Next, Querrey hits wildly out of court and we're level at 4-4.

Stepped away to do some work, and was surprised with a 7-5 Cilic ending :)

Cilic into the final :-)

And if his opponent is Federer, then I got both ATP finalists in my Skan team....

Thank you, Marin :-) My scouting during the Queens-event was spot-on....

And in the PGame, I did not pick a uWP; all my opponents did (but no one picked Cilic).#ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#If Federer wins this slam, I cannot win (even with a correct score). But if Cilic wins, and I pick Cilic, then I win. #ed_op#br#ed_cl##ed_op#br#ed_cl#So it is a no-brainer: I just picked Cilic to win the final.

So conflicted in the next semi, as I don't want either one in the final. Berdy is a jerk and I'm tired of the Rojay worship. I wish they'd both extent a w/o. BTW, if both players extend a w/o, can either one reinstate himself and move on to the next round?
