Marin Cilic has been a steady presence on the ATP Tour circuit since he turned professional in 2005. And he achieved quite a bit in his career.
Granted, he’s only won the one Grand Slam but his overall record is pretty good. After all, a total of 20 titles and being consistently in and around the top parts of the rankings is no mean feat.
In fact, in his career, he has reached the quarterfinals of all the four major Grand Slam events. But not just that – he’s also reached the last 8 of all the nine ATP Masters 1000 events as well.
From 2008-18, he made it a point to win at least one title a year. His maiden ATP event win came at New Haven in 2008.
Then in 2009, he won two titles – the Chennai Open and the ATP 250 event at Zagreb, Croatia. He would retain his Chennai crown the following year before doing the same at Zagreb.
Thus, by 2010, he had already won five titles in as many years of being a pro.
He would go on to win 14 more titles including the 2014 US Open. Till date, that remains his only win in a Grand Slam final.
However, his consistency means he is always on the minds of fans – who are interested in aspects of his personal life too. This, of course, also includes the kind of equipment he uses to play the sport.
Here we are going to analyse arguably the most important tool a tennis player will use on the court – a racquet.
Marin Cilic endorses the Head Graphene Touch Prestige Mid tennis racquet. However, as is the case with many other tennis players, he plays with a customised racquet that has the paint-job of the standard one.
Cilic uses pro stock Head Microgel Radical MP which has a code of TGK 231.3.
He also uses the Babolat VS Touch Natural Gut 16 strings in the mains. And his crosses are strung by Luxilon Alu Power 16L.
