13 years ago Croatia came to a stand still when Goran Ivanišević took on Australia’s Patrick Rafter in the Wimbledon final, tonight the country again will be glued to the box when Marin Čilić takes on Kei Nishikori in the US Open final…
Usually reserved for major football matches, it has been confirmed that Zagreb’s main Ban Jelačić square will be showing the match live on a big screen. Zagreb Mayor Milan Bandić has invited all those interested in watching the final to come down to the main square where apart from the match, there will be an entertainment programme, including singer Tony Cetinski and tambura group Begini. It will all kick-off tonight around 22:00, with the match due to start around 23:00 local time.
Čilić, who blew Roger Federer off the court on Saturday in the semi-final, has a great chance to become Croatia’s first Grand Slam winner since Goran’s win in 2001, although Nishikori holds a 5-2 advantage in head-to-head matches.
