O gosh say it isn't so,I hated the game we will be reduced to one dimensional players ,no guile no craftiness .There was more excitment for Andy and Noles game than was generated for this final

beautifully put grab.    I just hope that the servebots don't now create a mega full stop for the next few years.
Oh No! I would lose interest completely, Ruthie. Andy v Novak, Rafa, and all the real stroke players, serve 'n volley too, variety is the spice of life.

The match was boring no excitment at all. Kei had played to many long matches and had lost his spark. Cilic won because he served better but had little variety. It was very disappointing I put the telly off and went to bed. If this is what we can expect from so called up and coming players I'd rather watch Andy even if he is nowhere near his best as yet.

He has never won a Masters. Either had Kei. Im pretty sure neither had even reached a Masters final and I think the previous best performance by either of them in a Slam was Cilic reaching the AO semis a few years back. But now Cilic has a Slam , just one less than Andy.

Kei reached the Madrid final this year (which he really should have won after dominating Rafa in the first set and a half, but had to retire hurt).

Cilic though hasn't even reached a Masters semi before. Unbelievable jump from that to becoming a slam winner! But he found peak form this fortnight, playing his best tennis in the last three rounds. One of those moments where everything came together for him at the right time.

A counter puncher like Andy always fights back.

I remember the match Cilic vs. Andy in Rotterdam earlier this year when Cilic served relentlessly. Obviously, he has continued working on it, no wonder with Ivanisevic as his coach, backing it up with powerful strokes from the baseline. And furthermore he has found the mental strength, which has so often been a weakness (remember him vs. Andy at the USO 2012, one of my favourite matches). When you regard the tournament isolatedly, you must say that these two players deserved being in the final after some more or less tough matches. When you consider their career achievements, the outcome of the USO leaves me with mixed feelings. Two years ago everybody said that no other player deserved the title so much as Andy after all he had gone through. This year...?

Wawrinka also had never won a Masters.
