Marin Cilic arrived home in his hometown of Medjugorje, Bosnia and Herzegovina, as a Grand Slam champion. Over 20,000 turned out to welcome Cilic back home for the celebrations.
“Thank you everyone, especially my parents and my loved ones, because without them this would not be possible,” Cilic said. “Thank You God and Our Lady of Medjugorje for showing me the path to take. I am delighted not only for myself but for the people around me who rejoiced in my success, and I hope there will be many more in the future.”
On Facebook, after the Davis Cup, Cilic looked forward to unwinding. “Thank you all for kind words, last 6-7 days were incredible for me, I am so happy that we managed to secure a victory in Davis Cup playoffs with such a young team. We are back in the World Group, where we belong. Thank you all for the support. Rest time has finally arrived.”
