Cilic claims Zagreb title

Marin Cilic was a popular winner of the Zagreb Indoors as he retained his title with a straight-sets victory over top seed Tommy Haas.

The hometown favourite, ranked fifth, won his first title since landing this one a year ago, seeing off Haas 6-4 6-3.

As expected, his huge serve fired, yielding 10 aces. He won 80 per cent of the points on his first serve.

The victory takes the 25-year-old's tally of titles to nine, with this his first since his suspension for failing a drugs test.
