New York, Sep.8 (ANI): US Open 16th seed Marin Cilic has said that he hopes to defeat Britain's Andy Murray in the fourth round at Flushing Meadows today.

The six feet six inch Croat hopes to avenge his defeat at the French Open this year before heading to a Manhattan bar tomorrow to watch his country face England in the crunch World Cup qualifier.

Cilic, who has lost all three of his clashes with Murray, said: "Hopefully on Wednesday I will still be around to watch England against Croatia. I like to follow Tottenham in the Premier League - they have a few Croatian players now. I like Niko Kranjcar and also Luka Modric. It is a blow Modric is injured but hopefully we can still win. But first I must concentrate on my match against Andy. He always comes up with some unbelievable shots."

"Andy has been dealing with the pressure pretty well this season and the end of last year. I will try to be as focused as I can from the beginning of the match and try to start well. It is obviously harder if you are behind," The Sun quoted him, as saying. (ANI)
