Zagreb Final: Marin Cilic defeats Jurgen Melzer 6-3 6-1

Well done Marin. 9th career title - should reach double digits before his 25th birthday - and getting closer to the top 10

Now time to make the most of his opportunities at the bigger (namely Slams) for one.

MTF games titles:

Suicide Tennis (5): Wimbledon 2014, World Tour Finals 2015, Madrid 2015, Kuala Lumpur 2014 and Metz 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 WTF, 1 Masters 1000, 2 ATP 250; 2 finals lost

Fill-in-the-Draw (3): US Open 2014, Rotterdam 2013 and Geneva 2015 - 1 Slam, 1 ATP 500 and 1 ATP 250

Tennis Tipping (3): Veneza and Todi 2014 (with vn01), Knoxville 2015 (with Redkop) - 3 challengers; 7 finals lost

Melzer was robbed repeatedly the 1st set, then predictably imploded

Two extremely boring finals in one day.

Melzer was right about most of the bad calls.

Melzer in his speech: "Thanks also to the ballkids and especially to the linesmen!"
He was robbed a few times, but the difference between the two is too big anyway. Great to have this title, and now hopefully he starts playing his best tennis again.

Melzer was robbed badly ... i hate those nationalists ... whatever
Marin a big nice (thumb up from me) You and Richie both won your 9th title in the career. I want both of you to end 2013 higher in the rankings than your 2012th final ranking. Go Gaslic !

Congrats to all Cilic`s fans. It was obvious how much Marin wanted to win at home, how important it is for him. On his way to TOP-10 again, good luck.

Gasquet is next №1

Solid result, expected and living up to the expectations for this event. even if Jurgen was robbed on a couple of points, he was outplayed and mentally checked out way too early. on to better things in good spirits Marin!

I think you were a fan of Cilic and then when you realized that he is a complete moron all that love turned into hate.


The match was nothing special, His Excellency showed great composure and played some jedi mind tricks on ballboys for fun. Too bad for Melzer, but that is what happens when you play with the Nietzschean Superman that is Cilic.

Next is Memphis. Let the subjugation commence.

Re: Zagreb Final: Cilic and umpires defeat Melzer 6-3 6-1

Watched the whole match on TV. Ivan Ljubicic was also commentating it.

Čilič was unusualy consistent in his shotmaking made only a few silly errors.
It was a close and good match until 3-4 where the big robbery took place. Pretty much any close call until then went Marin's way, then Melzer's ace was overruled by chair umpire. Melzer went mad and also had a chat with Gerry Armstrong who was sitting nearby.
We need hawk-eye on every ATP tournament (except on clay).
