In a press conference after the Queen's final, Marin Cilic praised his compatriot Borna Coric's success over Roger Federer in the Halle final. 'Amazing win for Borna, obviously, beating Alex (Zverev) in the first round and going through the draw and then beating Roger, as well, today.
Amazing effort for him, first title on grass and first 500, so great week for Croatians', said Cilic. Looking into Wimbledon, given Federer's defeat today, does that make him dangerous or vulnerable? 'I don't know.
I think still he had a great two weeks. Hasn't played two weeks in a row for a long time, especially apart from the Grand Slams. So definitely a little bit different on his body, as well. But, you know, still he had a tough match today, three-setter against Borna who obviously had an amazing week.
You know, I think Roger, motivational level I think just slightly better and higher on Grand Slams, and you can see that throughout so many years that he's been showing the best tennis at Grand Slam levels.' ALSO READ: Roger Federer opens up on his physical shape after two long weeks
