Nicknamed ‘Chila’ and known for his fast serves and powerful ground-strokes, Cilic is tough tie-break opponent to face.  Over the course of his career, he has won 18 ATP singles titles, including a Grand Slam title at the 2014 US Open as well as reaching the Wimbledon final in 2017 and 2018.

Čilić first came to international prominence by defeating world No. 2 Andy Murray in the fourth round of the 2009 US Open.  A consistent performer at the highest level, Čilić has reached the quarterfinal stage in all four major tournaments.

His idol growing up was Goran Ivanisevic who became his coach and mentor in later years.  He considers grass and hard courts his best surfaces and will be a real threat on the fast courts at Indian Wells.
