Cilic crowned at the Queen’s !!!

Glory day for Croatian tennis as after Borna Coric at Halle Open, it was Marin Cilic’s turn to pick up the trophy in the Queen’s Club Championship final.

In a really great game, the Croatian managed to overturn and prevail over Novak Djokovic in 3 sets, 5-7, 7-6 (4), 6-3.

The game seemed, from the beginning, to be judged by the details. In the first set, Djokovic managed to break 6 break points, 5 of them in the same game, and finally to make the unique break of the set in the 12th game, winning 7-5.

The second set was even more closed and was decided in the tie-break. Cilic, although found himself losing by 4-1, he managed to make a super reversal by taking 6 consecutive points, reaching to 7-4 and equalizing the game.

In the third set, Cilic was obviously better with better psychology while Djokovic seemed somewhat disappointed and tired. The Croatian won the last set with 6-3 and won the Queen’s title for the second time after 2012. It was a really great victory for Cilic considering the fact that he had just one victory in 15 matches against Djokovic.
