Croatian Marin Cilic, 32 years old, was number 3 in the hierarchy and has 18 titles throughout his career, notably the achievement of the US Open in 2014, in addition to having already been in the Wimbledon and Australian Open finals. Frenchman Gilles Simon, former number six in the world and currently in position 69, has 14 titles throughout his career.
After the presentation of the Millennium Estoril Open squad on the morning of last Tuesday, an additional period of 48 hours granted by the ATP Tour to the players provided the entry list with an even greater curricular weight – thanks to the entries of two players with the status of top 10, Marin Cilic and Gilles Simon.
«After we announced a luxury cast at the official presentation, we can only be even more happy because we can count on two more protagonists on the professional circuit. Since the Millennium Estoril Open is televised all over the planet, the addition of two more well-known fans’ names will only increase the interest and audiences of our event », said João Zilhão about the participation of the two tennis players.
