"He's one of the big champions of the last decade, one of the very few active players, who won a Grand Slam tournament here in New York," Thiem said of Cilic.

On a good day, he can beat anybody."
"I think that lots of people didn't think it was possible to throw a javelin more than 95 meters in a closed stadium. I did it and I think there is a lot space for improvement. Very small differences, tiny differences, can make a difference of many meters." Enditem
