MATCH PREVIEW

Federer on the Comeback Trail

 

Everyone wants to see Roger Federer playing well now that he's fit again. He takes on Marin Cilic in the French Open after an impressive first round win over Denis Istomin. The winner of this match faces either 30th seed Taylor Fritz or Dominik Koepfer in the last 32.

Federer is down to eighth in the rankings, the lowest he has been since 2017. His comeback from injury has seen him play just three matches this year, winning just one of them. Federer made his comeback in Doha, beating Daniel Evans in three sets, then losing to Nikoloz Basilashvili in three sets. His only clay tournament warm-up was in Geneva where he lost his first match to Pablo Andujar, again in three sets.

We had little knowledge of just how well the Swiss legend could do at Roland Garros. His 40th birthday isn't far away and his one French Open title came 12 years ago. This is only the second time he's played in this tournament since 2015 and he admits that his main aim is to get ready for another crack at the Wimbledon title.

He didn't get much help with his draw, being in the same half as not just Novak Djokovic (scheduled to be played in the last eight) and Rafael Nadal. He showed a lot of promise in his first round match though, winning in straight sets for the loss of only nine games. After the match he said that "I just felt overall much clearer, much better."

Federer has had ten previous matches against Marin Cilic, winning nine of them. The one win Ciic has managed was seven years ago in the US Open semi-final. Only once have they met on clay, Federer winning that in straight sets ten years ago.

Cilic Battling Inconsistency

 

Marin Cilic is the current world number 47 but was third in the rankings three years ago. He rose to 41 this year but has again slipped down the rankings. Before this week he had won nine matches this year but also lost the same number. His first two matches of the year were lost, including a first round Australian Open loss to Grigor Dimitrov.

Better form was shown in Singapore where Cilic reached the last four.  The Miami Masters saw him win three matches to get to the last 16 where he lost to Andrey Rublev. His clay court season has seen him play four tournaments. He reached the semi-finals in Estoril but beat three players all ranked outside the top 100. Disaster struck in Geneva as he lost in his first match to Dominic Stephan Stricker, who at the time was ranked 419th.

Cilic is in the main draw at Roland Garros for the 15th time. He's made it to the last eight twice but not since 2018. Last year saw him lose in the first round to Dominic Thiem. This year he beat Arthur Rinderkneck in three sets. The first went to a tie-break but the next two were won with only three games conceded. He may well cause Federer some early problems but the Swiss player should be able to win this in straight sets.
