French Open: Marin Cilic stuns Daniil Medvedev to match his best-ever showing at Roland Garros

[ad_1]

Former US Open champion Marin Cilic took fans down memory lane as the 33-year-old knocked out World No. 2 Daniil Medvedev in straight sets in the men’s singles 4th-round match on Monday, May 30. Cilic matched his best-ever showing at the Roland Garros with a 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 win over Medvedev in a one-sided match in an hour and 45 minutes at the Philippe Chatrier.

Cilic, who had last reached the quarter-final at the French Open in 2018, looked switched on from the word go as he broke Medvedev’s serve twice in each of the three sets to wrap up a quick match in Paris. Cilic rolled back the clock, showcasing stunning court coverage and used all his experience to make sure he never allowed a way back to Medvedev, who is competing at the clay-court Grand Slam under a neutral flag.

French Open Day 9: Highlights

Cilic, a former World No. 3, had won the US Open in 2014 and reached the final of the Australian Open 2018 and the final of Wimbledon in 2017, but is yet to play in the final Sunday in the French Open. After having ousted Giles Simon and Medvedev, Cilic will face 7th seed Andrey Rublev in the quarter-final later this week.

“One of the best matches of my career, from start to finish. I really enjoyed being out here.

“These last 10-15 days were great for me. Very consistent tennis. Against guys like Daniil Medvedev, you have to sustain the level. You have to be really focused to keep going at that level,” Cilic said after his victory on Monday.

Cilic won a staggering 90 percent points on his first serve against an error-prone Medvedev who hit as many as 5 double faults.

Medvedev had conceded in the lead-up to the French Open that clay is not his strongest surface. The reigning US Open champion, who reached the quarter-final at Roland Garros last year, had headed into the clay season on the back of a 6-week injury layoff.

Earlier in the day, 4th seed Stefanos Tsitsipas was ousted in the men’s singles 4th round by 19-year-old Holger Rune who became the first Danish man to reach the Roland Garros quarter-finals.
