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.

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. Here, we look to answer some common questions on Cilic.
