Marin Cilic says his life "will be completely different" after winning his first Grand Slam title with a comprehensive victory over Japan's Kei Nishikori in the US Open final.
The world number 16 won 6-3 6-3 6-3 to become the first Croat to win one of the four tennis majors since his coach, Goran Ivanisevic, at Wimbledon in 2001.
His victory completes a Grand Slam year that has seen eight different winners of the singles titles across the men's and women's games, for the first time since 1998.
