Emotional Cilic steps up and says:“I think this is all hard work in these last several years, and especially this past year. I think my team has brought something really special to me in this past year.”

“You never know when the nerves are going to kick in. I think both of us were pretty nervous in the first set...everything I was working for and dreaming came today...”

Nishikori congratulates Cilic by saying: “I couldn’t play my tennis...it’s a really tough loss...sorry I couldn’t get a trophy today, but for sure, next time. It’s been a really fun two weeks.”

We begin the prize distribution ceremony. 

Marin Cilic wins US Open - In what turned out to be a one sided final at the US Open, 25-year old Marin Cilic came up with an exhilarating performance to win his first ever Grand Slam title. The Croatian, who was once banned from tennis due to a failed drug test, looked best among the two players and was just sensational today. Statistically speaking, the Croatian, hammered, 17 aces and 38 winners compared to his opponent's 19 and was the more proactive player of the two throughout the match. He was also assisted by the 30 unforced errors that the Japanese committed today.
