"After the first set I was relaxed and straightaway when I started to think too much and when things weren't going my way, I started to show frustration," Rublev told reporters. Source: Reuters. Cilic played aggressively, pinning Medvedev behind the baseline and advancing to the net at every opportunity as the Russian failed to find any zing behind his flat groundstrokes in the cooler night conditions.

I couldn't manage, all the time I couldn't manage the emotions. Cilic won four consecutive games from 2-2 to bag the opening set in 31 minutes and another break in the sixth game was enough for him to take the second set. "And now it was the closest ever time that I was able to go through to be in semi-finals. When you play this long there's always some ups and downs so I had to keep my focus," he added after a match that lasted more than four hours on court Philippe Chatrier.

The 26-year-old's problems with double faults and unforced errors continued as Cilic broke him again to jump into a 4-0 third-set lead. At least I did a better score and I was closer than other matches, but still, is the same thing." Source: Reuters .
