Ivanišević – Čilić Combo Working as Marin Wins 2nd ATP Title in 2014

Marin Cilic (2)Croatian tennis legend Goran Ivanišević seems to being wonders for the career of Marin Čilić after Croatia’s number one ranked player won his second ATP World Tour title in 2014 on Sunday…

Čilić, playing his third final on the bounce, beat former champion Kevin Anderson 7-6(6), 6-7(7), 6-4 in three hours and eight minutes to win the Delray Beach Open by The Venetian Las Vegas title.

Čilić, who now has 11 career titles, is coached by the former Wimbledon champion.

“It wasn’t easy for my nerves, for Goran’s nerves especially,” said Marin after the final, before adding “In the final some nerves can get into your body and you have to deal with it in the end. Luckily I found a way.”

Čilić has now won an impressive 18 matches in 2014.
