Marin Cilic returns to Wimbledon final after getting emotional

In a bizarre moment at Wimbledon on Sunday, an emotional Marin Cilic looked like he might be done for the day.

Cilic sat in his chair and had a trainer come out after trailing in his Wimbledon final match against Roger Federer, 3-6, 0-3. He appeared to be crying, but it wasn't apparent if he was injured.





Cilic would go back on court and win the next game to trail 1-3 in the second set. Federer would win the set 6-1.

After the second set during a medical timeout, Cilic had a trainer working on his left foot.

Federer won the match 6-3, 6-1, 6-4.

“I gave it my best,” Cilic said after the match. “That’s all I could do.”

Cilic, 28, ranked No. 6 in the world, won the 2014 U.S. Open, his only Grand Slam title.
