Defending champion Marin Cilic will take on the Frenchman Jo Wilfried Tsonga, in the quarterfinal of the US Open 2015, on Tuesday afternoon in New York.

In the third round, he survived a scare against the Kazakh Mikhail Kukushkin, whom he defeated in five sets. However, in the round four, he had an easy match against Jeremy Chardy, moving past him 6-3, 2-6, 7-6(1), 6-1. Jo Wilfried Tsonga on the other hand has had an excellent tournament so far, and is yet to drop a set. Most recently, he defeated his compatriot Benoit Paire 6-4, 6-3, 6-4. His season so far has been an average one. With a record of 17-11, he had the best run in the Roland Garros, where he was the semifinalist. Marin Cilic too has had a similar year so far, with Wimbledon being his best performance, where he was the quarterfinalist. Head to head speaking, this will be the eighth time that they will face each other. Marin Cilic has a slim lead by 4-3, and has won their last three matches, including the one in Monte Carlo Masters earlier this year.
For this game, while Marin Cilic may be the favorite, Jo Wilfried Tsonga is capable of delivering the upset here. This will be interesting game to watch.
