Cilic, the blessed big hitter

Marin Cilic – he's quite handy, isn't he
You're not wrong. The 23-year-old won Queen's last month, albeit thanks to David Nalbandian petulantly kicking an advertising board into a line judge.
But still, that win made it seven career titles.
Raw power: Marin Cilic will cause Murray problems
What about his Grand Slam pedigree
Cilic reached the last eight of the US Open in 2009, losing to eventual champion Juan Martin Del Potro, and made the Australian Open semis in 2010.
He has history with Murray, right
Yes. Cilic beat Murray at the 2009 US Open but lost to him in Melbourne four months later.
They also met at the French Open in 2009 with Murray winning 7-5, 7-6, 6-1.
In all they have played each other six times, with Cilic coming out on top once.

So what's his story
Cilic was born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in the tiny town of Medjugorje, which literally means 'between the mountains' and is home to just 4,000 people.
This might sound silly, but I'm sure I've heard of Medjugorje… however you pronounce it.
You have. It's where six children claimed to have witnessed apparitions of the Virgin Mary in 1981 and has been a site for religious pilgrimage ever since.
Roberto Mancini went there for inspiration when the title race was heating up in March.
Birthplace: Medjugorje, where six children were said to have seen a vision of the Virgin Mary in 1981
So this guy's a bit blessed
Well, the town survived any damage during the war which raged between 1992 and 1995, during Cilic's infancy, despite neighbouring villages being destroyed.
He and two brothers were brought up as Roman Catholics by dad Zdenko and mum Koviljka.
When did he start playing
Aged three. The town had tennis courts built in 1991 and Cilic has said: 'My friends and I were among the first to play on it.'
It wasn't until he was seven, though, that his tennis-playing cousin Tanja started visiting from Germany every summer.
Prognasticator: Goran Ivanisevic predicted success for Cilic
Why does he represent Croatia
He moved to Zagreb aged 13 for specialist coaching and better facilities.
Goran Ivanisevic, the 2001 Wimbledon champion, practised with him at that age and predicted even then he would turn into a top-10 player.
What weapons does he possess
He's 6ft 6in and sends down a big serve. He also has a wicked forehand and is a surprisingly good mover across the court for a man of his size.
