Hi, for those Croatian posters in here, is there any Marin´s interview or reports about his fitness in Croatian press yesterday or today? I´m a bit concerned about it. Thanks

Nothing much, there are a couple of interviews. He said he's fine, just tired. Plans to rest, get a massage, eat pasta , relax and get a light training before the match. He sounds OK, I think his fitness is high, he's discussed it in previous interviews quite a few times

that is his line from his interview yesterday...cant find aynything fresher:

"In this moment the most important thing for me is to recover in day off to be 100% for my match with Roddick.
But , i think tiredness have no influence in matches like that. Its the adrenalin leading you through big matches.
Soma pasta, good massage , early off to bed and i sholud be ready for it"

its not much but i hope i helped you

Good question I think in the end of last year, physics work was written on the paper of Marin' training and from Chennai, we've seen it. Marin isnt that kind of guys who can easily dig into something new and follow it fast and make it into effect at once. He needs time

For tomorrow, I am almost sure I will watch the match live I wish Marin nothing to lose, I would like ppl to put more bets on Roddick anyway, until the ball starts, the story will not tell its first word

Well, I read a good article on timesonline.co.uk today, about Marin's coach, Bob Brett, it is nice, wish you all would take a reading

Quote:
There were 354 points, all of them utterly absorbing before Marin Cilic defeated Juan Martin Del Potro, a result that has only added to the fascination of Andy Murray's section of the Australian Open draw this week.

Cilic, the conqueror of Murray in straight sets in last year's US Open, has announced himself as a grand slam contender in the mould of Goran Ivanisevic. Which is not unexpected considering it was Ivanisevic who sent Cilic to Bob Brett, his former coach, when he was 15 years old. Cilic stayed for a week the first time, he would stay forever now if he could.

Slowly but surely under the tutelage of Brett, the Australian once interviewed for the post of Director of Performance at the LTA but who felt the job's destiny had been decided before he had even arrived in London, Cilic has matured into a player rich in talent and of remarkable level-headedness for a 21-year-old. How he steadied his ship having lost the first and fourth sets to Del Potro, was inspirational. There are no Three Gorans here to write home about. Just one Marin.

Brett, who coached Ivanisevic through those times when he was regarded as a serial grand slam under-achiever, pins great faith in Cilic but does so in his usual understated manner. Not for Brett the desire for a headline, but only to do well by any player who wants to work with him. Look at Cilic against Del Potro and you understand what the partnership is all about.

Brett is unashamedly old school. He learned the art of man-management at the knee of Harry Hopman, the legendary Australian former Davis Cup captain who ran a regime in the 1950s and 60s that 'his' players still talk about in reverential tones. "There is no question about the influence of Hopman," Brett said. "I think it can well be summed up in the words of Kipling on Centre Court at Wimbledon about treating the twin imposters of triumph and disaster just the same.

"You cannot get too excited with the wins and equally, you should not get too despondent after the losses. It is about working out what is the next step forward in either case and trying to get better. It is about imagination, curiosity, and working hard. With Marin, as with any player I have worked with, you just try to add bits as you go along, but you need to right guy to work with. A coach cannot make a backhand passing shot at break point down, that is the player's task. I regard myself as very lucky."

Which, of course, is under-stating the job Brett has done. Not only does he still run an academy in San Remo, he is a consultant to Tennis Canada, helping to bring the best of their nation's youth to flower. What he might have done had he been granted the reins at the LTA, we shall never know.

"All credit has to go to Marin, though," he says. "He takes the information I feed to him and it is up to him to make something out of it. It is so important for a coach to be careful. You cannot change a player too quickly, it has to be done in small steps but, equally, there is only a certain window of opportunity available because it is very difficult to change a player once he has developed a certain style."

Whether or not he wins the Australian Open, the Net Post is as certain as he can be that Cilic will contest for the majors one day. His performance against Del Potro, especially in the fifth set after he had lost the fourth and the force appeared to be with the Argentine was exemplary. Brett didn't want to say as much, but he loved how his pupil responded. They are quite a pair.

"Definitely the win against Murray in New York was very good, and then against Davydenko, Nadal and Verdasco," Bob Brett, Cilic's venerable coach, said before practice Monday. "He's just become more aggressive. Now he's stronger, fitter, and he's able to sustain it for a longer period of time. Playing these guys more often, it's possible to learn."

Cilic certainly isn't averse to learning, added Brett, who has coached a few other Croats, including the zany Goran Ivanisevic and the intelligent Mario Ancic. Brett has also coached Boris Becker. Cilic and Brett have been together for almost six years.

"What is very good about him is that he's always ready for that something that needs to be changed and added to," Brett said. "He's very receptive and listens to my craziness. He's so committed to being good. He's a great athlete, he wants to be at the top, so he does everything that goes with that. He really has the passion."
