  • Cilic, Dolgopolov win at Mutua Madrid Open

    5/8/12 10:47 PM | Ricky Dimon
    Marin Cilic stays hot by taking care of Albert Montanes in routine straight sets on Tuesday in Madrid. Cilic is joined in the second round by Alexandr Dolgopolov, a straight-set winner over Pablo Andujar.


    Marin Cilic d. (WC) Albert Montanes 6-3, 6-3

    Two days after finishing runner-up at the BMW Open, Cilic wasted no time getting back on track in round one of the Mutua Madrid Open. Cilic served at a mere 46 percent, but he saved all seven of the break points he faced to advance in one hour and 18 minutes.

    Montanes was far from competitive in the first set as he donated serve twice, including at 3-5. After failing to even sniff a break point, the Spaniard earned seven chances in the second. But he could not climb over any hurdles, so one more break to Cilic allowed the Croat to serve out the proceedings at 5-3. Next up for Cilic is No. 8 seed John Isner.

    (16) Alexandr Dolgopolov d. Pablo Andujar 7-6(5), 6-4

    Dolgopolov fired 10 aces against only one double-fault and he won 86 percent of his first-serve points to book a spot in the second round after one hour and 39 minutes. Just a few big points decided the match, including a tense first set that featured one break of serve each and resulted in a tiebreaker.

    The momentum sided with Dolgopolov and he took the 'breaker seven points to five. Madrid's 16th and final seed capitalized on his lone break chance in the second and saved the only break point he faced--thus making for the difference. Andujar returned well all day and won 55 percent of his second-serve return points, but he was doomed by seven double-faults compared to zero aces.
