But the Swiss star does possess an awful lot of power on that missile of a backhand... Expert analysisGreg Rusedski: Hes back in business. He played great tonight. Cilic played him into form. Hes very confident going up against Marin because Marin isnt willing to come forward which allowed him to hit many groundstrokes and get a feeling for the ball.
