Marin Cilic (born 28 September 1988) is a Croatian professional tennis player. Over the course of his career, Cilic has won 18 ATP singles titles, including the 2014 US Open. His career-high singles ranking is world No. 3, achieved on 28 January 2018. Cilic first came to international prominence by defeating then-World No. 2 Andy Murray in the fourth round of the 2009 US Open, and then reaching the semi-finals at the Australian Open a few months later. He was also runner-up at the 2017 Wimbledon Championships and the 2018 Australian Open, losing to Roger Federer both times. Cilic has reached at least the quarterfinal in all four grand slam tournaments. He is known for his fast serves and powerful ground-strokes.

Cilic started to develop his career at a young age; his first steps of tennis started in Bosnia and Herzegovina. His potential was discovered by local hometown coaches who saw him play and encouraged his move to Zagreb for further training. He was soon befriended by his countryman to be Goran Ivaniševic, who introduced him to coach Bob Brett. Cilic turned professional in 2005 and ultimately hired Ivaniševic as his full-time coach in 2013. Cilic parted ways with Ivaniševic in late July 2016 after advancing to the 2016 Davis Cup semifinals before choosing Jonas Bjorkman. He is currently coached by Ivan Cincus.
