We finally made it to the US Open finals. To say that the two remaining competitors were unexpected would be the understatement of the year. It’s the first final since 2005 with no top four featured. As for our part, we didn’t back Federer and brought his chances for the final to naught, Nadal has withdrawn, Murray and Djokovic faced each other in the quarterfinals. Who really shocked us is Nishikori defeating Novak Djokovic in the semifinals. And this matchup can’t be taken to the Serb’s credit. He was well under his professional level.
And now about the final itself. Marin Cilic from Croatia will play Kei Nishikori from Japan. There is no overwhelming favorite in this match, but there are a number of nuances. Kei made it through two very tough encounters against Raonic and Wawrinka and then as if nothing had happened upset Djokovic showing a high level tennis. But there is a limit to everything. If the match longs too much in time, Nishikori is likely to feel exhausted. Cilic, on the contrary, had a much easier route to the final defeating Berdych and Federer. Berdych surrendered almost at the very beginning, while Federer was worn out after his matchup against Monfils.
Now some words about Cilic’s serve. It’s really great. His first serve is high-powered, the second one is also very reliable. Both of them will be very inconvenient for the not too high Japanese. The Croat serves the second serve with a ball bouncing high causing troubles to the short Kei so that sharp return of the second serve he practiced against Djokovic won’t work. Also the Japanese play is not without disadvantages. Almost in every set he loses one his serve, sometimes even two. With Cilic it won’t work, as it is very hard to break him back. And finally. Marin plays very aggressive tennis, like Raonic and Wawrinka. With the latter two the Japanese player has faced most of his troubles.

Such evaluation of Gasquet from the bookmakers is understandable. The Frenchman lost his two previous encounters in a row to Monaco and Nadal, which is a sign of a bad form from Richard.
Everything in this match counts in favor of the Spaniard. Nadal, as a real locomotive, took long to get into stride. But having accelerated he becomes unstoppable. Rafa performed well in Madrid
