Roger Federer and Marin Cilic's unlikely post-marriage parallel

Marin Cilic and Roger Federer share something in common when it comes to their marriage. Of course, this was something great for them. But getting married doesn't guarantee immediate success. Cilic married his longtime girlfriend Kristina Milkovic last weekend, then he played the Istanbul Open and lost in the opening round to Malek Jaziri.

In 2009, when he got married, something similar happened to the Swiss as well. He decided to play the Monte Carlo without really enjoying his honeymoon and after beating the Italian Andreas Seppi in his opening round, he lost to his compatriot Stan Wawrinka 6-4, 7-5 in the third round.

After withdrawing from Madrid due to a knee injury. Cilic will make his return at the Rome Open next week. ALSO READ: Roger Federer announces surprising comeback - Here is where
