  • Cilic and Granollers win in Umag

    7/12/12 12:56 AM | Cheryl Murray
    Hometown favorite Marin Cilic and Spaniard Marcel Granollers had successful starts in Umag on Wednesday.

    Marin Cilic (2) def. Daniel Brands 6-3, 6-2

    No. 2 seed Marin Cilic of Croatia had a quick day at the office against Germany’s Daniel Brands. Cilic was never under pressure in this match. In both sets, he got early breaks of serves and a second insurance break. He gave up a single service break in the opening set, but he was never in danger of going down even a set.

    Cilic finished the match with six aces and just 56% first serves in. He will take on American Wayne Odesnik, who upset Blaz Kavcic in their second-round match.

    Marcel Granollers (4) def. Potito Starace 6-4, 3-6, 6-3

    Spaniard Marcel Granollers had to work a bit harder to earn his spot in the quarterfinals. The No. 4 seed dropped the middle set to Italian clay-courter Potito Starace in a match that featured a string of service breaks.

    Neither man is known for his serve, a fact emphasized by the combined 24 break point chances for the match. Granollers converted on four of the 16 chances he had against Starace and the Italian snagged three service breaks.

    The match was decided in the third set when Granollers managed to secure a second break. The No. 4 seed will take on Matthias Bachinger in the quarterfinals.
