So while I was at the 2014 US Open, I had the chance to see the 2014 US Open Champion, Marin Cilic warm up during qualifying rounds (before the start of the main draw tournament). To say the least watching Marin Cilic hitting with Goran Ivanisevic was awesome, and he looked really sharp (I thought he was going to go far in the tournament). But seriously who could have predicted him taking Federer out in straight sets and winning the final of the grand slam!
Anyways, I saw him in August 2014 warming up before the tournament. Goran looked awesome, and as he ages appears to be in awesome shape. I snapped some cool footage off my iphone (sorry, next year I promise to deliver better quality hitting video in hd!) but still captures some cool hitting between Marin Cilic and Goran Ivanisevic. They were mostly warming up the groundies and doing some drills. Marin Cilic was hitting big heavy balls, with lots of power. He has such clean shots, and it was very awesome to watch. Goran’s volleys still look sharp by the way and its no wonder he won Wimbledon. Well thats enough out of me – check out the footage below.

Here is part 2 of Marin Cilic hitting with Goran Ivanisevic, below (a bit longer 1 minutes and 30) –
Anyways, that’s all I got for now but check out our channel because we shot a few other pros hitting. Including Dimitrov and Verdasco (wow this guy can hit a big ball). I will be writing up some blogs on these guys and my comments on them over the next few weeks, so watch out for that. Thanks for reading guys and have an awesome weekend!
