Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

Forget to add: Dimitrov = the most overrated player ever in MTF...

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

Cilic didn't have top 10/5 potential to begin with.
One of the ugliest players to watch BY FAR.

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

Nothing happening to him, he's just stalled in the 10-15 rankings range. Aus Open was a freak, he only beat roddick and delpot cos of injury.

Plenty room still to improve, many elements of his game are still kinda junior-ish.

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

I think he is a very good player, but lacks that something extra that will take him further. Big forehand, but there are much bigger ones, and he can go way off on that side. Solid backhand, but much like del Potro/Soderling/Berdych. Moves well for a big guy, but movement can be exploited. Doesn't serve as big as he should, not much variety. You see him and think, ok, he's a complete package, but delPo, Soderling, Berdych seem like if they catch fire, they'll burn much more fiercely than Cilic.

He is entering the phase where he should start to become a consistent QF-SF presence, if he wants to make a push at the top.

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

He is still young so you shouldn't worry too much. Of course I have always thought that Marin was missing a little something, especially since he doesn't come across as a huge hitter or anything like that, more like a decent all-court player.

Federer / Haas / Safin / Gaudio / Kuerten / Youzhny / Nadal / Gonzalez / Ljubicic / Hewitt / Soderling / Wawrinka / Coria / Nalbandian / Kohlschreiber

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

Good question. Wasn't Cilic one of the players with the most rising potential? He has just disappeared off the radar for the last few months..

DELPO

Also supporting known chokers Verdasco, Lopez and Monaco

Maybe 4 or 5 if he wants to get more of a workout in.

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

Funny how a guy in the Top 15 that has beaten Murray, Nadal, Del Potro, and Roddick all on hardcourt in the last year is being called a bad player.

He's just a young guy who will have his ups and downs while developing his game....add that he is pretty bad on clay and grass and still has to regain some confidence, and his play of late is really no surprise.
