Federer collapsed in the US Open semi-finals

Federer succumbed to Cilic’s momentum and youth this time.

The victory over the former world number one also gives Marin Cilic the opportunity to help Croatian tennis end its 13-year long thirst for a Grand Slam title.

Not long after Japan’s Kei Nishikori eliminated number one seed Novak Djokovic, Cilic also played brilliantly to contribute to the first Grand Slam men’s singles final without representatives of the big four (including Federer).

“This is an unbelievable but exciting day in my career.

This achievement at the US Open also helped the Croatian tennis player have a better return after four months of being banned from competition because he tested positive for a banned substance, which he claimed was just an accident.

Contributing to his current success is coach Goran Ivanisevic, Cilic’s one-time idol.

Cilic entered the game very quickly and limited Federer’s net play.

Cilic is facing a great opportunity.

The owner of 17 Grand Slam titles has made spectacular comebacks many times, including a five-set victory in the recent quarterfinals after allowing Gael Monfils to lead by two sets.

The player from the Balkan region continued to play solidly with returns from the back of the court.

After about an hour and 45 minutes of competition, Federer had to say goodbye to his seventh chance to appear in the US Open final and the first time since 2009.

Meanwhile, Cilic is facing a golden opportunity to end the thirst for a Grand Slam title for himself and the entire Croatian tennis community since Wimbledon 2001 – the tournament in which his current coach Ivanisevic was crowned despite only being able to participate.

However, Cilic could not easily overcome the big challenge in the final.
