Croatian Marin Cilic fell short of winning his second Grand Slam after losing to Roger Federer in the Australian Open final. A tough loss, but Cilic at least found a way to push Federer to five sets despite starting the match with a stinker of a first set. This is the second loss to Federer in a final Cilic has suffered — the two also met in the 2017 Wimbledon Final.
Fortunately Cilic seems to be taking his loss well (as he should with that fat AO payday) — he posted a picture with his trophy and congratulated Federer on major No. 20 on social:
As for Cilic’s personal status, his longtime partner is Kristina Milkovic. According to her LinkedIn, she holds two masters degrees (Psychology, PoliSci) from the University of Zagreb and currently works for Zagrebacka banka.
There are reports the two got engaged after Cilic’s Wimbledon final loss last year.
