  • Dodig scores upset over Cilic, Dologpolov advances

    5/1/13 8:44 PM | Cheryl Murray
    Dodig scores upset over Cilic, Dologpolov advances The No. 2 seed is out already in Munich, dispatched by countryman Ivan Dodig. The Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov also scored a victory on Wednesday.

    Ivan Dodig def. Marin Cilic 6-4, 6-2

    Croatia's Ivan Dodig put in a fantastic performance to take out the No. 2 seed Marin Cilic in the first big upset of the tournament.

    Cilic certainly wasn't at his best, but it was Dodig who took control of the rallies, dictating play and generally leaving the world No. 11 at a loss.

    There was a glimpse of hope in the second set, as Cilic, already down a break, managed to break back for 1-1. But the spark was quickly doused as Dodig ran through the remainder of the match.

    Dodig will take on Alexandr Dolgopolov in the third round.

    Alexandr Dolgopolov (5) def. Dmitry Tursunov 7-6(2), 7-6(3)

    No. 5 seed Alexandr Dolgopolov got a straight set win over Dmitry Tursunov, but it wasn't an easy victory. Both men held serve routinely for most of the games leading up to the tiebreaker. But it was Dolgopolov with his trademark variety that won him the first set. The Ukrainian peppered Tursunov with drop shots, throwing the Russian slightly off his rhythm.

    It was Tursunov who had the early advantage in the second set, but the Russian played a horrific game in the eighth game of the set to gift the break right back to Dolgopolov.

    Once the No. 5 seed forced the tiebreaker, he once again took control for the straight-set win.
