Tournament organizers should know better than to keep spectators on edge to see who comes out victorious in a fight between Serbian Janko Tipsarevic and Croat Marin Cilic. Can’t they both just move on to the next round?
And no, your eyes are not deceiving you. They are both wearing tops from this season’s Fila Collezione Group. How fitting that a match filled with ethnic tension would be outfitted with shirts that look like bloody shards of glass. Argh, why do they wear the same shirts on the court? Flip a coin or something. And Janko, with those red spectacles you crossed the line to overcoordination. (Perhaps this is why the crowd was pissed off!)
Scoreline: The very tense second round match ultimately went to 19th-seeded Cilic (who’s been doing well so far this year, with a title from Chennai). The score was 6-2, 6-3, 4-6, 6-3.
