Čilić’s US Open-Winning Racket to be Locked Away for 100 Years

CroatiaThe racket that Marin Čilić used to win the final of the US Open last week in New York will not see the light of day for another 100 years…

Čilić has put the prized Head racked inside a time capsule, which Zagrebačka banka will safeguard for 100 years.

“I would like that one day in a 100 years, one of my descendants takes it out of the time capsule,” said Čilić, before handing over the red-rimmed racket.

To celebrate 100 years of doing business in Croatia, Zagrebačka banka are giving citizens the opportunity to place anything they wish in a time capsule which will not be opened for another 100 years. Those who open a time capsule do not necessarily have to be clients of the bank, and everyone who does chose to open one will be sent a certificate of verification. That certificate will need to be produced when they capsules are open in 2114.
