Marin Cilic wins the St. Petersburg Open against Taylor Fritz

by archysport

Recent finalist in Moscow, Marin Cilic confirmed that he was in clear regain of form by winning the Open of Saint Petersburg (Russia) this Sunday. The Croatian won a rather disjointed final against the American Taylor Fritz (7-6 [3], 4-6, 6-4) where in the end there are no less than ten breaks. But Cilic was able to tighten the game when needed, especially in the tie-break of the first set.

Fritz might have thought he had done the hardest part by coming back up, but it would have taken a little more consistency on the serve in the final round to hold out until the end. Instead, he conceded a second break in the set on a fifth double fault. Behind, Cilic was quick to conclude and win his second title of the season after Stuttgart and reach the bar of 20 career titles.
