Will Marin Cilic ever win a major?

Ok guys I´m new her and I already read a few things on this board.
One of my indentations is that,Cilic is one of the most hated guys here, especially the Croats hate him here.
But I like him a lot and he´s one of my favs along with Del Potro, Nadal, Fed and a few others.

Ok but now I want to know your opinion if Cilic will win a major title or even more..
Don´t forget he´s still young with 21 years and I think the youngest player in the Top100 after Donald Young and Dolgopolov.
I think Cilic needs to pull it together and try to get mentally tougher.
I also think he should fire Bob Brett and hire a full time coach who´s going with him to tournaments and who really works on his flaws, like his serve which is pretty weak for such a tall guy.
IMO he has the weapons and I´m sure his time will come.

Your opinion.. Haters and bitter Croats please get out here. (RIboy, samanosuke..)

Re: Will Marin Cilic ever win a major?

I don't see it honestly. The technique on his forehand alone won't let him win 7 matches in a row. He can always improve the serve, but no pro can change the grip of his strokes at this point in the career.

Re: Will Marin Cilic ever win a major?

Pathetic to say he has no chance. Of course he has a shot, hes a great tennis player. You dont get to the top 10 aged 21 by being a hopeless tennis player. And he probably gonna have another 20-30 shots at it after all!

Re: Will Marin Cilic ever win a major?

No one can say he surely won't get one (no, not even some of you clowns here), because he still is young and prone to change. He surely is talented and I don't really see, why someday he couldn't reach for the top. C'mon, who foresaw Johansson getting the AO in 2002?

Never had any special fan feelings towards him, neither liked nor disliked him, I just find some of the arguments here (strangely, some even by his compatriots, who I'm sure will be the first to bandwagon should he become successful) really immature and illogical. Bullshit to be precise.

Re: Will Marin Cilic ever win a major?

A good question to ask is....who can't he beat?

On clay and grass, I think he has a very small chance of winning a Slam.

On hard courts, he has the game to beat most anyone on a given day. He has already beaten Murray, Roddick, and Del Potro at Slams, has beaten Nadal on hard courts and clearly has the type of hard court game that gives Nadal trouble. I think Federer is a very bad match-up for him....and he has a poor record against Djokovic as well. But if he could avoid those guys and beat the guys that he should beat, then I don't see why he couldn't win a Slam.

Cilic has to really work on his approach shots and net play
