3 winners compare to 13 unforced errors. Hilariously incompetent.

Stepanek was 11/1 as well pre-match, and he's been playing well all week.

Would have been a brave bet, mind.

Andy will claw it back.  I'm feeling somewhat guilty for being one of the ones that said him to win in 3 ... I actually thought 2, but I'm such a Pollyanna when it comes to his scores that I went conservative on this estimate.

He finds ways to win when he's not playing his best.  Cilic could say a few words about that ...

We're about to find out if this is going to be one of those really average performances and straight sets defeat, or one where he starts slow then eventually finds his best stuff and comes through fairly comfortably after a fairly worrying start.

That's a great description of two of the three Andy's!  (The other being when he comes on court and blows his opponent away - unfortunately that Andy stayed at home today.)

He needs to try and keep him running on the base line, come to the net himself as often as he can and play some drop shots. Easy!
