Marin Cilic won a HEAD-to-HEAD final as he beat fellow Racquet Rebel Tommy Haas 6-3, 6-4 to capture the PBZ Zagreb Indoors title for the fourth time. The fifth-seeded Cilic, who endorses the YouTek™ Graphene Instinct, added the trophy to his wins in 2009, 2010 and last year.
"It feels great to win here at home again,” said Cilic. “The week was really good. It's going to help my confidence and my game, especially in the indoor season. I'm going to head to Rotterdam now and I'm looking forward to keep playing with good form there."
Top seed Haas, who recommends the YouTek™ Graphene Prestige , was competing in his 28th final after winning the 550th match of his career in the semi-finals. "Marin played a solid match," said Haas, ranked 12th. "He served well when he had to. Marin played the big points better with good shots and deserved to win."
