World No. 1 Rafael Nadal is just three wins away from joining Australian icons Rod Laver and Roy Emerson as the only players to have won each of the four Grand Slam titles twice – can the Spaniard move a step closer to that achievement on Tuesday at Melbourne Park when he comes up against sixth seed Marin Cilic? Nadal, who we must remember is playing his first tournament of the season, dropped his first set of the tournament in his previous round,
but all things considered, he has been in ridiculously good form and is building for the business end of the Australian Open nicely. But then we have Cilic, the surprise 2014 U.S. Open champion and reigning Wimbledon runner-up – a man who has made a habit of flying under the radar at slams only to pop up and deliver a stunning performance when we least expect it. Could that happen on Tuesday? Nadal and Cilic take to court at 7.00pm local time on Tuesday (8.00am GMT).
Marin Cilic is coming off a four sets win over Pablo Carreno Busta that took 48 games to decide. In the victory, Cilic won 81 percent of his first serve points and 50 percent of his second serve points. Cilic was broken four times in his fourth round victory, but he hit 73 winners and came away with nearly every big point to prevail to his second ever Australian Open quarterfinal. Cilic is proving just how dangerous he can be with his shotmaking skills,
but he has played a lot of tiebreaks this tournament, so fatigue may be an issue if this match is stretched out for a period of time. Cilic hopes to make his fifth career grand slam semifinal appearance. Cilic has lost six of his 10 career grand slam quarterfinal appearances. Cilic has won six of his last seven matches on hard court.
