New Delhi: Grand Slam champion and world number nine Marin Cilic says his decision to sign up for the upcoming International Premier Tennis League was motivated by his desire to play in never-seen-before cities in countries such as India.
"For me a big part of the decision came because in the countries where we'll play, people can't see players too often. It's a really nice opportunity to interact with them and try to play in cities I have never played in before," says the 26-year-old Croatian star.
