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.
