NEW YORK – Unable to play in the U.S. Open a year ago because of a doping suspension, Marin Cilic is now the tournament’s champion. Croatia’s Cilic won his first Grand Slam title by beating Japan’s Kei Nishikori 6-3, 6-3, 6-3 on Monday at Flushing Meadows, using 17 aces – including four in one game – and the same powerful groundstrokes that helped him eliminate Roger Federer in the semifinals.

Frustrated by Monfils’ unpredictable style, flummoxed by the swirling wind, and missing shots he normally makes, Federer twice was a single point from losing while down 5-4 in the fourth set.
