Cilic to Win
Both players are playing their last years as professional tennis players, still in good physical shape. The Croatian Marin Cilic is favourite in this feature, he already knows what it is to win a US Open. On the road, Evans never won a Grand Slam.
Cilic has a unique opportunity to climb many places in the ATP rankings, as last year he lost in the first round, so with every round he wins, he will add a good amount of points to his record. We think the Croatian will win as he is playing with more confidence than his opponent, as he has not faltered in the early rounds he has not lost a set.
