The past eighteen months have been testing times for Cilic who's struggled both with injuries and a form crisis. Back at the start of 2010, the 6'6 Croatian was strongly expected to force his way into the top ten, heralding a new era of hard hitting giants along with the equally imposing Juan Martin Del Potro.

At that point Cilic had just reached the semi-finals down under and the quarters of the US Open the previous year but lean times were to follow.

With his forehand technique beginning to buckle and savvy opponents starting to exploit the weakness, the wins weren't coming for Cilic at all and he never properly regained his spark until this autumn where he reached the China Open final and won the St Petersburg title.

After finishing 2011 on such a high, Cilic will be extremely frustrated to miss the opening slam of the year. He's also out of the Chennai Open, an event he's won twice in the past three years.

"Having started the previous five seasons at the Chennai Open, the city is a home away from home for me. Only an injury could have kept me away from the Chennai Open," Cilic told the tournament. "Thankfully, I am recovering well from the patella tendon injury and I'll surely be back next year."
