SUNDAY REVIEW - CILIC LIFTS THIRD ZAGREB TROPHY; KNOWLE-POLASEK WIN DOUBLES
•    Marin Cilic has become the first player to win three PBZ Zagreb Indoors titles.
•    The World No. 12 also lifted the trophy in 2009 (d. Ancic) and 2010 (d. Berrer). He has a 17-4 tournament record.
•    Cilic improves to a 9-7 record in ATP World Tour finals and to a 9-2 match record in 2013.
•    Julian Knowle and Filip Polasek defeated Ivan Dodig and Mate Pavic in 55 minutes for the doubles title.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Marin Cilic: “Most of my game was working extremely well. My returns were really good and I had a read on almost all of his serves. I took my chances and defended well. Overall, I played a great match from beginning to the end.”

Jurgen Melzer: “He was the better player today. I needed it to be close at 4-all, 5-all in the first set to give me confidence. That didn’t happen and he ran away with it. I felt like I was hitting the ball really well at the beginning, but he hit the ball even better. What made the difference in the first few games is that he had free points on serve, whereas I had to work for them: hit a winner or play well so he missed. He deserved the victory.”

Julian Knowle: "Obviously it was a great week for us. Today, we think we played our best match of the tournament. We had to, because Dodig and Pavic beat a lot of good teams this week. I am happy to win a title here.
