Milos Raonic meets Marin Cilic in the fourth-round of the 2020 Australian Open on Sunday January 26 2020.
Milos Raonic booked his spot in the fourth-round of the 2020 Australian Open in a shocking fashion. The Canadian was able to beat the world number 6, Stefanos Tsitsipas, in straight sets. This result was something which no one expected and whatching how Raonic played in this match reminds us of how he used to play a few years ago. Raonic has had a tough couple of years due to injury, but his win over Tsitsipas gives us hope for a return of the great Milos Raonic.
Marin Cilic got revenge against Roberto Bautista Agut for his defeat to the Spaniard last year at the Australian Open. Cilic won a 5-set thriller against the Spaniard and was very strong on his serve. The Croat Grand Slam champion will want to go far in this tournament and challenge for the title. Cilic is tall, has a big serve and an amazing forehand. How will he come against a rejuvenated Milos Raonic?
These two players have met 3 times before and Cilic leads the H2H 2-1. Cilic is the more successful player, more experienced and knows how to play on the big stages. On the other hand, Raonic, has struggled recently. Will Raonic be able to maintain this level and go even further? I believe Cilic will come out on top of this matchup, but it won’t be an easy victory. Cilic will have to work for it and it might go to 5 sets. But if Cilic is able to keep his composure, it could be over in 4 sets.
Cilic in 4 sets.
