Croatian tennis player Marin Čilić has beaten Milos Raonic to win the TEB BNP Paribas Istanbul Open on Sunday.

Croatia’s number one was too good, winning in straight sets against the tournament’s top seed 7-6(3), 6-3 to clinch his 17th career title and his first in 2017.

Čilić was in amazing form all tournament, not dropping a single set all tournament and also notching up his 400th match win.

Čilić joined fellow Croats Goran Ivanišević (599) and Ivan Ljubičić (429) in passing the milestone after he beat eighth seed Steve Darcis 6-1, 6-1 in 45 minutes in the semi-final.

“I’m on a good track. My tennis is on a high-level. This title is a big sign for the rest of the clay season. I enjoyed my time in Istanbul. The center court and the roof is unique. You can’t get to find such stadiums,” he said after his win.
