Andy Murray vs. Marin Cilic
Murray leads series 3-1
Last Meeting - 2009 U.S. Open R16
Cilic won the match 7-5, 6-2, 6-2
Both Andy Murray and Marin Cilic know how important today's match is for each one of them. It is a match that will see one of them get an opportunity to embrace Grand Slam glory, and for one in particular, Murray precisely, this match brings a chance to settle scores with the Croat who knocked him out of the U.S. Open last year.
Andy Murray's progress in this tournament has been near-perfect. The Scot did not lose a single set en route to semifinals and looked in killing form against defending champion Rafael Nadal. His only struggle came in the pre-quarterfinals against John Isner, where despite a straight sets win, Murray was taken the distance.
Cilic, on the other hand, has taken out some of the strongest conteders for this year's title. After his swashbuckling five set win over Juan Martin Del Potro, the Croat upset seventh seed Andy Roddick in a marathon struggle.
All in all, this match is bound to produce some high quality tennis. On paper, Murray has a brighter chance of reaching his first ever Australian Open final.
TennisEarth's Pick - Murray in four sets.
