Cilic ended 2016 with his best rank­ing to date at No. 6. Ranked No. 7 prior to the 2017 Aus­tralian Open, he is seek­ing his first ti­tle in Mi­ami af­ter a sec­ond round de­feat last year. His best fin­ish in Mi­ami came in 2013 when he reached the quar­ter­fi­nals. Cilic con­tin­ued his streak of claim­ing at least one ti­tle for nine straight years (2008-2016) when he won his first ATP Masters 1000 ti­tle in Cincin­nati and claimed his first ATP World Tour 500 ti­tle in Basel. As a re­cip­i­ent of the 2016 Arthur Ashe Hu­man­i­tar­ian Award, Cilic’s stun­ning year also pro­duced his third straight Wim­ble­don quar­ter­fi­nal ap­pear­ance and his sec­ond run in the ATP fi­nals. Cilic led the Croa­tia Davis Cup team to the fi­nal and emerges in 2017 ea­ger to make a run for a crown in Mi­ami.
