I have had it since set 2.

Fed's chance is to see Cilic crumble before the line... I don't think it will happen though.

I can't believe Fed could be at 19 slams after this match.

36% first serves in that set. 

Poor.

Hope Fed changes something now, this is getting ridiculous, gifting 2 sets now.

I wonder if his incredibly easy draw has caught up with Roger a bit here? He choked at the end of the second set and he hasn’t been able to live with Cilic when he’s turned up the heat. Frankly, he’s been hanging on and hoping for Cilic’s level to dip.

That said, I would still say this is 60-40 in Fed’s favour. Experience should count in this set.

At the moment it is on Cilic’s racquet. That can change, but Fed can not handle his power.

Federer is so scared to bash the ball in a rally he is awful. He is trying to play too safe

Cilic needs controlled aggression and not reckless bashing.

Finally the right intensity. He'll need all of it. Cilic is not about to choke this time, he plays like he has nothing to lose

Agree LK. Fed needs more variety from his perspective though - he’s just been content to trade with Cilic from the baseline and his game isn’t about that anymore.

2DFs from Cilic helped a lot there.

Federer's serve needs to improve....back to 60% plus!

Luckily, Cilic is still a choker. But we were here in set 4 and it was not enough.

Pfew. What started off as lovely Sunday morning, turned out as a road to hell and back. The fact Cilic always serves a few free points keeps Fed alive. And me too btw

Indeed...but some are real chokes like his FH in this TB v Nadal.

The neo Fed: complaining against ref and linesmen. I like it: he means business at last

Perhaps, though I have always felt he tightened up in big moments far more than, say, Delpo.

Dodgy drop shot. He is clinging on with will power and fumes. Still feels more on Cilic’s racquet than Fed’s; but Fed’s experience and greater technical quality helps a little.

Eight more decent serves.....

After that first set Cilic played to save face and not to actually win the match. That's why he got so dangerous. I don't think he choked because winning it was never in his head.. Maybe a little when the fifth started.
