"It was a fantastic match from me" - Cilic after downing Medvedev

Marin Cilic had a brilliant level to beat world No. 2, Daniil Medvedev, in straight sets and reach the quarter-finals of the French Open for the third time.

Medvedev had won all three previous meetings against Cilic and was yet to drop a set at the tournament. But he was overwhelmed by a clinical display of hitting from Cilic, who finished with 33 winners and didn’t face a single break point in a 6-2 6-3 6-2 victory that lasted just one hour and 45 minutes.

He said:

"It was an absolutely fantastic match from the first point to the last. I played incredible tennis, one of the best matches of my career from start to finish."

Cilic had looked in impressive form in his opening matches, only dropping three games in the first round and five in the third round, but the ruthless fashion he dispatched with Medvedev was still a surprise.
