The Croatian giant had yet another great week at the Aricel Chennai Open. Everything climaxed today with the final win against Wawrinka.

Cilic used his most important weapon, his huge serve, to win this important encounter. Wawrinka had his chances to win the first set but it was Marin who grabbed it after a tiebreak.

The second set started great for Cilic who raced for a 2-0 lead. However, Wawrinka managed to break back very fast and leveled for 2-2. The Croatian star missed his first match point at 5-4. Finally the second set ended with another tiebreak won comfortably by Marin.

The Chennai Open final was similar to the Brisbane International one played earlier this morning. Everyone is preparing for the Australian Open now.
