Marin Cilic, the 2014 U.S. Open champion and 2017 Wimbledon runner-up, pulled out of the grass-court Grand Slam tournament due to an illness. Place a bet on the Wimbledon at any Michigan Online Casino like BetMGM, DraftKings and FanDuel. 

Cilic shared on Instagram this past Monday that he has been self-isolating and was hoping he would get better in time for the tournament, but added that he was still unwell.

Cilic was replaced in the draw by 123rd-rankedNuno Borges of Portugal.

During the qualifiers for Wimbledon Borges lost, but  now he will face Mackenzie McDonald of the U.S in the first round of the main draw on Tuesday. 

Earlier this month, in the French Open, he was able to make a run that got him to the semi-finals, and made him the 5th active man to complete a full set of appearances at all four major tournaments alongside Nadal, Djokovic, Federer, and Murray.
