US Open Tennis latest
Marin Cilic says "I think this is all hard work this last several years especially this last year. Goran has brought so many things but the mist important was joy in tennis and always having fun. You never know when the nerves kick in and we were both nervous the first set. Everything I was working for and dreaming came off today. For all the other players who are working hard this is a big sign that if you work hard things will pay off."
The roar of victory
That was remarkably one-sided. Nishikori just didn't seem to have anything left after those epic battles against Wawrinka and Djokovic, and looked thoroughly jaded. But Cilic was excellent, using that amazingly vicious serve and a withering forehand to devastating effect. He bullied Federer and has done it again with Nishikori.

Cilic begins with an ace at 130mph, follows it with one at 129mph. 30-love. Finally, he hits the net but takes three championship points when Nishikori drags his backhand too wide. He tries to settle it with an ace down the line (twice) but he double faults. Two match points. Faults again then wins off his second serve with a backhand pass. Game, set, match and championship. Cilic wins the US Open.

Cilic wins the first point on Nishikori's serve but lets his opponent back in with a tame chip into the net and the server moves ahead with a whippy forehand winner. Cilic moves within two points when Nishikori overpowers his backhand down the line but he then hits only his second ace of the match to push it to 40-30 and holds off his second serve. Cilic will serve for the championship.
