Marin Cilic out of AO

Marin is out of Chennai and the AO, he will come back indoors in Zagreb. He is still recovering from the operation he had, and not fully fit yet, so without holding a racquet for 40 days makes no sense to go down under and risk further injuries. Last week he started with some cardio work and some running. I met him at a rehabilitation center were he had physical therapy, ,y colleague made some pics of us which I will forward you in a couple of days.


P.S: the hate he gets here is unreal, nice and easy, down to earth guy, wasn't bothered at all replying tons of questions I had, and listened to every suggestions the therapists and I gave him... ;)

He's not hated, he just bores people to death. It's not necessarily an insult, the best professionals usually are uncharismatic nice guys.

It is unfair. I like him.

Real shame he's out of action. The start of the year is almost always his best time.

Don't hate him, I just don't expect much from him. Hope he finds his form.

Too bad, he can play much better than people give him credit for. Hopefully he recovers soon :)

Cilic is not hated, it is a love from MTF, and disappointment when he loses, especially when he loses while choking.

I wish Cilic the best and hope for a full recovery. Injury is an athlete's worst nightmare.

i think marin gets a lot of hate mainly because he isnt good looking and we all know MTF is more shallow than a pond in the asphalt

Pity is a more subtle form of hate.

That said, happy recoveries MC Ilic.

This sucks. I'm pissed off about this.
I like Cilic, and I'm angry because he'd miss the Grand Slam where he made his best achievment.
I remember his matches that AO, omg, what a difficult draw he had and he reached that SF beating Tomic, Waw, Delpo and Roddick, I think he defeated all those players in 5 sets. Damn, i'm gonna miss him

Remember when I first saw him (early 07?), I always figured he would get bucketloads of injuries with that physique, and especially that back arch on the serve.

Now, by saying above, imagine scenario in which he didn`t suffer any letdowns like in last tournament he won...and yes actually
a scenario in which he actually wins AO!
Uuppss! Must have been beautiful Andy Murray instead:p

Wishing Marin Cilic a quick recovery! There have been way too many players injured lately.

I didn't know he chose to have the surgery. I read an article from Dec. 5, where he said he would try two months rest and some injections (like Nadal did) because he was hoping not to have the surgery because the recovery time is so long.

I wish you the best Marin. You were a mug after the SF Australian Open for a long while up until the U.S. Open last year. So you really changed my outlook on you. You were on the track back to your competitive form, now this happens.

I wish you the best buddy, I hope you recover and everything goes smooth. We don't want another Ancic type career.

Bad that he is injured but he was going to lose 1st round anyway.

Here we have Marin doing test at an Isokinetik device; he is better with every day, but due to his akward service motion he might have back problems in the future; also his dominant right side (hand and shoulder) are way stronger then his left side; but the results were promissing..

So he's ready for Zagreb?
