Marin Čilić (Croatian pronunciation: [mâriːn tʃǐːlitɕ]; born 28 September 1988) is a Croatian professional tennis player. Over the course of his career, Čilić has won 18 ATP singles titles, including the 2014 US Open. His career-high singles ranking is world No. 3, achieved on 28 January 2018. Čilić first came to international prominence by defeating then-World No. 2 Andy Murray in the fourth round of the 2009 US Open, and then reaching the semi-finals at the Australian Open a few months later. He was also runner-up at the 2017 Wimbledon Championships and the 2018 Australian Open, losing to Roger Federer both times. Čilić has reached at least the quarterfinal in all four grand slam tournaments. He is known for his fast serves and powerful ground-strokes.

Čilić started to develop his career at a young age; his first steps of tennis started in Bosnia and Herzegovina. His potential was discovered by local hometown coaches who saw him play and encouraged his move to Zagreb for further training. He was soon befriended by his countryman to be Goran Ivanišević, who introduced him to coach Bob Brett. Čilić turned professional in 2005, and ultimately hired Ivanišević as his full-time coach in 2013. Čilić parted ways with Ivanišević in late July 2016, after advancing to the 2016 Davis Cup semifinals.

Marin idioooooooooocilic

Cadê Milos Raonik e Stan Wawrika?

Sretno Marine🙌💪

The ATP tour, well they all like one another, pretty much, "off" the court. It makes me happy, as an avid tennis fan. Marin is shy, but curiously very sociable. It's a confluence that I am particularly fond of.

HAHAAHA .. 6-1 PELLA KING !!

animal animal animal

Odličan tjedan u Monte Carlu, Marine!

Hopefully you’re feeling 100%! You’re much better than 10. We need you back in the top 5!

Molim te ostavi se tenisa i primi se badmitona Hvala pusa

👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿

I'd love to know what comment caused the laughter.👍

Ovo ti je zadnji vlak, vrijeme ti je da napraviš neki dobar rezultat.

What a beautifull gruop of Friends ❤ 🎅🎅🎅

Some good & not so good news today:
While my knee rehabilitation is going well, I am still not able to perform at the level I expect of myself, and will unfortunately have to skip the ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament. I was greatly looking forward to returning to this tournament to build on previous success, and am hopeful I will have the opportunity next year. In the meantime, I will keep fighting hard to get back to 100% for my next tournament in Dubai! 👊👊

Bonjour Marin, c’est Sacha qui a fait ta connaissance au Rolex master à Paris. Je suis actuellement à l’Open Sud de France à Montpellier et j’espère que tu y viendra l’année prochaine...🏆🏆🏆

"Patient perseverance attains to all things" Marvin better to recover properly to avoid exacerbating the injury. Plenty of green juices with celery and cucumber as the base and also include turmeric as a supplement. Spray "Ancient Minerals" magnesium oil on the area about 3 times per day

Sretno, čekamo pravog Marina 😉

Sretno !!! Vrati nam se jos jaci !!!

Takoje dragi Marine prijo se oporavi pace opet ici dalje,zelim ti brz oporavak i svako dobro tebi i tvojoj dragoj. Pozdrav.🇭🇷️🏸

Steta, planirala sam ici u Rotterdam...ali ok, bit ce druga prilika! 🙂 Spremi se i oporavi za Dubai! Uspjesan oporavak! 🎾👍🏼🍀

Samo ti ozdravi i polako dijete drago neka ti je dragi bog na pomoci

Dolazim te gledati zemljače !
