Haas summed up his up-coming match quite fittingly, “(Cilic) has a big game and I will try to play my game and change it up on the court. . . it’s going to come down to winning the big points.”
The German has had an abundance of success in his 550 wins. The former world number 2 has earned 15 titles and finished as a runner-up on 13 other occasions. Zagreb also marks Tommy’s 13th event as a No. 1 seed.
