Marin Cilic US Open Interview - Day 1 Monday August 28th 2017

M. CILIC/T. Sandgren 6-4, 6-3, 3-6, 6-3
THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. Took a set from you. Bit of a battle. You talked about the fact you hadn't had much matchplay. How did it feel to be back out in tournament tennis? How is the abductor feeling?

MARIN CILIC: Everything feels okay physically. I'm very happy with that. That's the number one thing.
On the court obviously I felt, as well, that I'm just lacking a little bit of that consistency point after point, to be continuing with my aggression, with my tennis.
Just today I felt that after those first two sets, which were quite good, considering I haven't played, just dropped little bit with my game. He started to swing little bit more, obviously two sets to love down.
It was a good fight towards the end of the match. Also I was not running away to try to shorten up the points. I was actually feeling that could be also quite good for me to get in some rallies, battle it out, just mentally-wise to get myself in a good position.
You know, feeling quite positive with first round. Not the best as I would want, but still in a good way, you know, keeping myself positive.

Cilic wins US Open opener

Cilic wins US Open opener

Marin Cilic tried to find confidence from the heartbreak of an injury-hampered Wimbledon final loss in his return Monday at the US Open after an adductor muscle strain.

The thigh injury left him in tears on the court as he lost to Roger Federer last month in a bid for a second Grand Slam crown after his 2014 US Open triumph.

"I knew that, OK, I was not physically 100 percent in that final. That was just tough for me to handle, especially in that moment," Cilic said.

Roger Federer wins 8th Wimbledon title

Roger Federer wins 8th Wimbledon title

Roger Federer has done it again, this time in more dominant fashion than ever before. Without dropping a single set over the Wimbledon fortnight, the ageless wonder has taken the title, defeating Marin Cilic 6-3, 6-1, 6-4.

The title, his first at the All England Club since 2012, gives him a record eight Wimbledon championships, surpassing a tie with Pete Sampras and William Renshaw, who played from the amateur era. It also extends Federer’s record of career slam championships to 19. It’s his second major this year — he also won the Australian Open.

In the first set, both men held in their first two service games. But serving at 2-2, Cilic fell behind 0-30 after a fantastic backhand volley from Federer and then 0-40 after an unforced error. Three points later, Federer converted on the break opportunity. From there he took over with his serve, holding at love twice before finishing the set with another break.

The Swiss superstar’s dominance continued in the second set. After sandwiching two holds around a break, he took a 3-0 lead into the TV break. On the changeover, Cilic began sobbing in his chair, covering his face with a towel as a trainer came to his side. It wasn’t immediately clear what was ailing the Croat, though. He had slipped on the aforementioned 0-30 point in the first set but finished the set out without needing medical assistance.

Cilic returned to the court after his breakdown, but things didn’t get any easier. Trying to serve-and-volley more often, he won just one game the rest of the set as Federer’s dominance continued.

Cilic got medical attention again between the second and third sets, receiving treatment on his left foot. It seemed to help somewhat, as he held solidly for three straight games with Federer matching with holds of his own. At 3-3, however, Federer got the break he was looking for as light rain began to fall. From there, Federer finished the match in straightforward fashion, raising his fists to the air after conquering the field at his favorite event once again.

At 35 years and 11 months old, Federer is the second-oldest major champion ever, behind only Ken Rosewall, who won the 1972 Australian Open at 37. It’s one of the very few records the Swiss superstar has to chase, and based on his form over the past two weeks, it’s not a stretch to think it’s more than well within reach.

Watch Sam Querrey vs Marin Cilic Wimbledon Semifinal

Sam Querrey will face off against seventh seed Croation Marin Cilic in what should be an absolute huge match.

Querrey had a fantastic build up on his way to Wimbledon competing in both the Queen's Club Championships and the Eastbourne International to allow him to get used to the grassy terrain after a long run on clay courts.

His first match saw him make light work of Italian Thomas Fabbiano who he defeated in straight sets (7(7)-6(5), 7-5, 6-2) to kick start his tournament. The round of 64 saw Querrey drop his first set of the competition against Nikoloz Basilashvili. However, he remained focused and saw out the match three sets-to-one (6-4, 4-6, 6-3, 6-3).
