Cilic going long with the return; 15-0. Cilic pushing Federer deeeeep in that rally, and he nets; 15-all. Lovely first serve; 30-15. Think Cilic was possibly trying to pass Federer with the return there, but it goes wide; 40-15. WHAT A RETURN; 40-30. A very solid second serve, and that's the hold.

Oooh, not sure Cilic thought that return was coming back, but it did; 0-15. Federer going to the feet of Cilic, and he can't get the volley; 0-30. Some beautiful backhands from Federer, Cilic nets, and it's THREE BREAK POINTS.

Cilic is not amused at the sit down, not sure what he's saying, but it doesn't look good.
