The 3-hour-20-minute night-session match on Margaret Court Arena, between two players who will become the sensational Grand Slam champions four years later! There was 4-all in the 2nd set. Wawrinka (seeded 19th) took medical time-out (right foot) at 3:4* in the 3rd set and a toiled break between 3rd & 4th sets. Cilic (seeded 14th) finished the match with an ace (out-wide). He won another two rounds in five-setters to play his first Grand Slam semifinal.
Highlights of their Chennai final, played two weeks before: Cilic won 7-6, 7-6 in 2:41 hrs (1:17, 1:24)
