In an interview to The National in Dubai, Marin Cilic commented on the Andy Murray's possible retirement from tennis. The Scot was in tears making the announcement at the Australian Open earlier this year. “It was definitely a sad moment for Andy and for tennis in general", said Cilic.
"I really do hope that he can come back to continue to play and to play on his own terms. But looking at it from the side you realise how important it is to dedicate yourself as much as you can and to use every day the best you can, sort of not wasting opportunities and trying to be as good as you can in practice and in matches”.
Analyzing his 2018 season, Cilic believes he could have done some things better. “I felt at the French Open and Wimbledon [last year] that I had tough losses. French Open it was with Del Potro [in the] quarter-finals.
For me, second year in quarters over there and I felt I was close to winning. I was actually better [than Del Potro] in that match and at the end of the match I lost it and it was definitely a tough loss because I felt I could go through to the semis and I felt I was playing great tennis."
