Marin Čilić Happy ‘Like a Kid’ After First Win in 4 Months

Marin_CilicMarin Čilić has made a successful return to the court after serving a four-month ban for doping when he beat Dutch qualifier Igor Sijsling 5-7 6-1 6-4 in the first round of the Paris Masters on Monday.

Čilić served 21 aces in his comeback match, and says that he feels like a kid again playing his first match.

“I felt like a kid playing my first match again,” said Čilić, before adding.

“All the players, they know me and they were really happy to see me and they were really happy that this is over for me. Everybody knows it was like honest mistakes, and it can happen to really anyone. I’m of course definitely against doping, against the players who are cheating, and I would say that there should be some more seminars for the players to be more aware about these things that can happen,” said Čilić.
