    Points won by each set: | 35-23, 44-36 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    49 % Kyrgios – 28 of 57
    33 % Cilic – 27 of 81

    The 20-year-old Kyrgios [41] saved a set point at *4:5 in the 2nd set with an ace out-wide, and served four aces in five service points of the subsequent tie-break! Cilic’s [12] second defeat in the Marseille final (previously to Robin Soderling in 2011) and now he has a 14-10 record in the ATP finals. “I played my first final last year and was looking for my first title,” said Kyrgios. “But I didn’t really expect to win this title this week after having a couple of weeks off. But from the first round I started playing really well and just gained confidence as I kept winning matches.”

    Kyrgios’ route to his maiden title (29th main-level event):
    1 Vasek Pospisil 6-4, 6-4
    2 Teymuraz Gabashvili 6-4, 6-4
    Q Richard Gasquet 6-0, 6-4
    S Tomas Berdych 6-4, 6-2
    W Marin Cilic 6-2, 7-6(3)

    Kyrgios didn’t drop a service game (saved BPs in three games of three different matches)
