fail

He was terrible in winning though , but he needed start to loose matches in a row to other see how limited he is , even when he had decent results he wasn't winning because he was playing great . I haven't seen Cilic beating a guy who was playing good match or in form player yet . And these are the reasons why some people are now surprised how bad he is . They haven't seen or didn't want to see how bad he was

He went 17-1 at the start of this year, thats not bad at all.

Extends to a record of 29-6 going back to 2009, dispatching Nadal and Murray without losing a set. Also routined Verdasco and Davydenko. Wins this year over del Potro and Roddick too.

Didnt show much on the clay this year and has been totally unable to recapture any form on hard court. Of course there was the incident with the lad who practised with Cilic who got into medical difficulties...If that affected him i dont know.

He just isnt playing as well as he was 8-12 months ago, pretty simple.

When we was playing well the fans of his naturally talked him up on here, making the following slump more standout.

Because the same posters make the same douchebag remarks with each loss in his pathetic downward spiral, because he beat a lot of people's faves when he was ascending, because people think saying 'He's not all that' during a slump makes them seem perceptive about tennis, because kicking a player when he's down is MTF GM's favorite sport (people here are better at it than at playing tennis) and because he isn't a flawless male supermodel like the rest of the ATP and the gorgeous male hotties who post to MTF GM.

Well done. Although I haven't seen anywhere NEAR the kind of hate for Cilic that has been showered on Novak Djokovic's head for years now. Wasn't Novak voted `Most hated player on MTF' a while back? Nobody really knows why - frustrated little MTF punks just constantly indulging in hate, thus publicizing what vicious little clowns they are. MTF mugs,who could never aspire to the level of a Djokovic or a Cilic.

MTF thrives on hate. Typical thread - Who do you hate most? - blah blah blah. Go home to mama little puffs. Sickening lack of sportsmanship or appreciation of tennis exhibited on this site!

Serenidad
10-30-2010, 05:59 PM
Mugrin quite possibly has the ugliest game in history to match the ugliest face in history and that's in Nadal and Federer's era. To outclown those two takes a lot of clownery.

There's no saying who will catch MTF's collective hate fantasy at what point of time. In some cases,reasons are clear like with top players who defeat other favorite top players. But in most cases it's random. It has to be.Otherwise Cilic doesn't fit any stereotype for hating. He definitely doesn't look like he dopes, never springs into limelight, goes about his business quietly and is not a pusher.

He has been pathetic as of late.

Showing no consistency at all, and losing a lot for no apparent reason.

Perhaps, a death in the family?? or just mentally not there.

His serve isn't a big deal, not everyone can serve the same way or with the same power. It's totally subjective.

He's not as aggressive as Soderling or Berdych, but he can still try to be more clean within the rallies to avoid over hitting the points.

HKz
10-31-2010, 03:31 AM
Because people hyped him up to be Goran's true successor and then similarly to plenty of other hyped players, he didn't win 99999 slams, so therefore he is a failure at life.

Honestly, sometimes I wish all of MTF were together at some kind of tennis club that has all the top players, and see if they would actually tell them "you're trash" in front of their face. Because they clearly do it here behind a computer screen. Maybe everyone can attempt to learn tennis and the true competitive nature of the sport and they would have more respect for all the ATP pros, whatever their rankings are.

His personality does not fit current tennis circus.

Honestly I wish I would be mug like himself and achived so much in life;)

I don't hate him and probably noone really does.

I just dislike his ugly groundstrokes (forehand is just disgusting, I swear my is nicer) and the fact he loses so many tiebreaks for no reason is just a joke.
With his ability he should be winning 70% of them.

He'll bounce back, I'm sure. But next year (january, february) is gonna be brutal I'm afraid. :o

Lots of people talking about his ugly game style and weak serve.
But there are lots of similarities with Cilic´s game and JMDP´s one.
Weak serve, with Cilic a having a better movement and JMDP hitting the FH more stealer than anybody else.
Cilic = hated because killing so many players who have tards on this boards
JMDP = same game = praised like god

And you guys seriously thing JMDP is out for such a long time only because of an injury
Sorry but he has some serious mental issues too.

Actually JMDP is praised like a God only because he managed to beat Nadal and Fed at the same slam and win the whole thing in the process. He was a mental giant in 2009.

But to be fair in 2008, when he was merely a MM king, he was dismissed as yet another ballbasher. So let's not pretend he's been praised without a good reason. Cilic, on the other hand, folds like a cheap tent at every tiebreak he plays, and his form since AO has been dreadful too.

Answer to that question is very simple and there is a two groups of people that HATE Cilic.
1st group of haters: those who lost money betting on favorites that Cilic beat when he was young, up and coming, promising, widely unknown player.
2nd group of haters: those who lost money betting on Cilic from March 2010 until today.
If you can hate somone just because he has a boring playing style than you have a big problem and one simple solution: stop watching Cilic.

Actually Mugin's serve is pretty awful for someone his height. He regularly serves a ton of double faults and 50% or less first serves in. His tie break record is also horrendous and huge servers are supposed to have an advantage there.

Why do people hate (dislike?) him? Poor attitude, looks lethargic on court, ugly groundstrokes, braindead shot selection, inconsistent and over-hyped, especially after his AO run.

Sensible posts. Sensible posters. They unbalance the trolls.

I...don't know. I was impressed by his work ethic and on court attitude, which some would call "boring" I guess.

That silk maroon Fila mess of an outfit doesn't help. Reminds me of something I would pick out of the trash in the Lower East Side in '79 when I had no money.

Agreed. The problems Cilic will face through his career will be similar to Davydenko's. No matter how hard he'll work, his average looks, his stick figure and - his monobrow (that's actually funny, Leng jai) - will conspire hatred towards his game despite his good nature and great discipline, and yes you guessed it; nike won't endorse him.

Actually Mugin's serve is pretty awful for someone his height. He regularly serves a ton of double faults and 50% or less first serves in. His tie break record is also horrendous and huge servers are supposed to have an advantage there

For someone of his height, yes but not poor in itself. I see him produce excellent angles with it. His serve and his groundstrokes are his strengths.

Why do people hate (dislike?) him? Poor attitude, looks lethargic on court, ugly groundstrokes, braindead shot selection, inconsistent and over-hyped, especially after his AO run.

Cilic doesn't always look lethargic at all. He gets mentally lost if things don't work as per plan and he has no plan B but that's not being lethargic or lapsing in effort. He gets physically tired or goes off to sleep in crucial games.

2010 -2011 were just a blooper in the radar. May the ball-basher flourish here on.

01-03-2011, 09:59 PM
I feel sorry for Marin right now,he's in a slump and sometimes its such a battle to get out of them. He gets tight in key situations,especially tie-breaks,thats purely psychological,he is currently showing a lack of self belief. To me he has looked flat mentally and to a lesser extent,physically for some time now. His game seems wooden and worn out as a consequence. He doesn't show emotions much,maybe he needs to be a little more fired up.

He does seem a sensitive though nice guy,and will be worried about whats happening,trying to clear his mind.

No-one goes into a slump on purpose,whats going on right now with him really is no justification for hating him,there are heroes and zeroes every day in sport.

I hope he will soon have renewed spirit and confidence on court.

I don't hate Cilic. :shrug: Yeah, it's been frustrating to watch him since his last decent result in Washington last summer, but every player has a slump at some point in their career. Hopefully, he makes the necessary changes to work through it - he's still young after all. From what I've seen, he seems like a real nice guy.

He lacks a bit of charisma and his come aaaans can be quite irritating but there's nothing about him worth hating

and his backhand is hardly an ugly stroke unless you're some clown who thinks Robredo has a nice backhand just because it's one-handed.
