MADRID, May 9, 2019 – After a long period, Croatia's number one ranked tennis player Marin Čilić has won three consecutive wins to reach the quarter-final of the Madrid Open.

Čilić was a set down and a break in the second set against Serbian Laslo's before turning it over to win their Round of 16 game 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 at Mutua Madrid Open on Thursday.

Čilić, who walked almost two months without victory, hit 12 aces against another. The Serbian had disturbed seventh seed Juan Martín del Potro in the round of 32.

The 30-year-old walked past Slovakia's Martin Kližen in the first round, where he won a tie breaker in the third set before coming down from a set to beat Jan-Lennard Struff in the round 32.

Čilić will meet either Novak Djoković or Jeremy Chardy in the quarterfinals.

It has been a tough year for Čilić, who has seen his ranking from a career high # 3 in 2018 to a current location of No. 10 after a series of early tournament exits.

Meanwhile, Croatia's Petra Martić draws 8th seed Sloane Stephens in the 16th round later today.
