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.

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! 👊👊

"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! .....I'm practicing my Croatian 😁 xx

U r a great fighter of the game and always never give up ,one day you must win a Australian Open, our best wishes with u and wish u best of luck in future.

Mozes na rehabilitaciju al mozga tog tvoga pa ti mozda pomogne 😂😂

Bilo pa proslo, naravno kad ti izgubi onaj za koga navijas krivo ti, ali stvarno nema beze! Meni je vazno gledati borca koji se ne predaje do kraja, kome ne pada moral, a tako je izgledalo, bilo je super gledati vas sve do kraja.

Marine odmori se želim ti brz oporavak, jer kada ti ne igraš, tenis me zanima.

Sretno marinee trebao si pobjedit al dobroo idemo daljee💪💪💪

Bravo Marine, igras odlican tenis samo nedostaje ponekad malo sportske srece, sretno dalje 😁💪💪👏👏

heart of a lion greatest respect and honour to you

Samo naprijed,odmori i u nove pobjede,uz tebe uvijek i u pobjedi i u porazu

Great tournament champ , love your fighting spirit 🙏🏾👏🏼

Bio si sjajan, glavu gore i oporavi se pa opet. Srdacan pozdrav.

Nema veze,danas nije bilo sportske srece neke lopte su otisle na stranu B.Aguta.Odigrali ste jos jedan sjajan mec.Sretno dalje!

Good luck Marin! Thank you for your great effort. Will definitely miss you for the rest of the tournament.❤️

You did your best Marin, take a good rest now. You did great fights this week 💪🏻 #teamcilic always 🙋🇫🇷🇭🇷🎾💪🏻

Tako se zapocinje sezona u kojoj si najavio napad na broj 1? Mucenje od pocetka turnira dosao dokle si dosao uz dosta srece, e pa Marine moj nedolazi se do broja 1 srecom... 😉, Sretno dalje ali na ovakav nacin je bolje biti malo oprezniji s izjavama o tom famoznom br 1. Da me netko neshvati krivo, svu srecu na tom putu uz tebe sam/smo. 🎾💪❤️

Marin u done brilliant but perhaps you and Roger were not meant to meet in the next round. Recover well and remember, your fans love you.

Great watching matches ten sets in short time.must be extremely exhausted💪👍👌

Hard Hard luck mr clic you playing good tennis but luck not Favare hopfully coming back very strong

Hang in there, Marin. We love your spirit

It's a long season , grand slam Cilic, we love you

"It's not how many times you fall but how many times you get back up that counts"

Šteta. Poslije bi bio Tsitsipas a ne Roger. Otvorio se ždrijeb Agutu sad. 🤔🤔🇭🇷

I admire you a lot though I am a Fednatic. You are such a kind man. I have your signatures coz I wld always ask for your autograph everytime I watch you play. Thank you for your kindness. I always root for you as long as you're not fighting Roger. Sorry, but still you are greatly admired by me.

Not a big fan but nice message

Bravo za postignuto 👍🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾 Ljepo se odmori i oporavak neka prođe dobro zdravlje je naj bitnije 👍🙏

Proud of you always Cro guy.
