Marin Cilic is confident that he is close to winning more Grand Slam titles in his career because he is continuing to improve as a player.
The 29-year-old world number seven has only one major success to his name having won the US Open in 2014, while he has also won another 17 ATP Tour titles during his career.
Cilic has shown signs of winning a second Grand Slam in the past 12 months having lost in straight sets against Roger Federer in the 2017 Wimbledon final, before the Swiss veteran again got the better of him in a five-set thriller in the final of the Australian Open at the start of 2018.
The Croatian has also reached the quarter-finals of the French Open in the past two years, although he did crash out of last month’s Wimbledon at the hands of Guido Pella in the second round.
Despite that blip, Cilic is setting his sights on more major wins with one eye on the US Open, which gets under way at Flushing Meadows later this month.
Speaking ahead of his Rogers Cup third-round tie against Diego Schwartzman, Cilic said: “I feel that with my consistency with my game, I’ve kept myself improving the past couple of years, always finding some more things that I could improve, that I could look into a bit more.”
“I feel that new chances are going to come up and that I’m getting closer to winning some more Grand Slams.”
