Guido Pella reflects on Marin Cilic win at ATP Cup

Argentine world No. 25 Guido Pella was extremely satisfied with the way he performed against 2014 US Open champion Marin Cilic at the ATP Cup. Pella, who suffered a shock defeat to Austrian world No. 105 Dennis Novak on Monday, bounced back two days later with a straight-set win over Croatian Marin Cilic 7-6 (1) 6-3.

Cilic made a good start to the match but Pella recovered from a break down, before dominating the tie-break to win the opener. The Argentine then saved a total of five break points, before claiming the lone break of the second set in the sixth game.

"I think I played very solid from the baseline. My service game was improving a lot after the first set, so I started to feel much confident with my game, with my whole game," Pella said, per the ATP Cup. "I think in the end I was playing my best tennis with great shots, very good from the baseline.

I also played good volleys, so I think overall I did a very good match." Pella's teammate Diego Schwartzman then delivered in the second rubber as he saw off Borna Coric in two sets to secure the win for Argentina over Croatia.
