What is happening to Marin Cilic?

The young Croat, after a brilliant start of the year, is lacking in good form and results. Do you have any suggestion on what might have happened to him? Can you suggest good articles, whatever the language, about his "crisis"?
Thanks

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

About what crisis are you talking ? That is his peak , he can't better . Brilliant start of the year ????? He won Chennai and Zagreb by beating mugs and chokers . At AO played 5 setters against Tomic . Beat Del Potro also in 5 which hasn't played a match since that moment , he beat clearly injured Roddick also in 5 . Not really impressive . That is main problem with Cilic . Some people really think that he was playing great tennis and that he is capable for something big and than they are talking about somehow crisis . Even if he is in some crisis that crisis is permanent

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

I think it's his version of sophomore blues. I think he is a bit directionless at the moment. Probably needs a new coach and some completely different input. Still he is within top 15 so it's not that much of a worry yet.

I may be new here, but, can someone explain to me what do you mean by mugs and chokers?

You know same has been talked about Berdych after winning Paris in 2005, huge tlent blablabla but he didn´t show anything until 2010 when he´s already 25 y/o younger than Cilic, JMDP, Nadal, Djokovic, Murray, Gulbius... and then people still see him winning a major that´s ridiculous and Cilic is going to be trashed the whole year.. if Roddick was that bad injurd at the AO I doub´t he could have won a single set against Cilic.. Roddick is a faker samw with his mono lie.. Dude I´m not buying this crap of him that´s nothing but excuses..

mug = a bad player

choker = a player with little mental strength who plays badly in tight situations

Re: What is happening to Marin Cilic?

I truly fail to understand this thread. Is something suppose to be happening to him? He's already at peak, this is the best he can do. Stop overrating him

The BIGGEST (borderline delusional) fan of players on General Message Board according to Forehander:
Grigor Dimitrov: FedererBulgaria
Borna Coric: Crowdmaker
Nick Krygios: Dan.
Tommy Haas: Leng Jai
Sebastien Grosjean: Myself
Novak Djokovic: Chiico (Leader of the No1e Cult)

Yeah, he might as well retire now. Shame on him for not considering it already. One would have thought that at the ripe age of 21 he would have had the wisdom and foresight.

What? In the same way that you're bigging up Dimitrov with your fucking stupid signature...
