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.
