– Obavit ću par manjih zahvata koji će me udaljiti s teniskih terena na dulje vrijeme, što nažalost znači da neću moći sudjelovati u Davis Cupu ovog mjeseca, napisao je Marin Čilić na Instagram profilu.
Završni turnir Davis Cupa održat će se u Madridu od 18. do 24. studenoga, a izbornik Željko Krajan je uz Čilića prijavio Bornu Ćorića, Matu Pavića, Nikolu Mektića i Ivana Dodiga.
– Veoma sam razočaran ovim, ali vjerujem u svoje suigrače i bit ću im najvjerniji navijač. U međuvremenu ću se posvetiti povratku u formu kako bih u sezonu 2020. ušao zdraviji, spremniji i motiviraniji nego ikad prije. Hvala svima na podršci i radujem se što ćemo opet biti zajedno na turneji 2020. ⠀
Prvi susret u Madridu branitelji naslova imaju 18. studenog protiv Rusije, a dva dana potom slijedi okršaj protiv domaćina Španjolske.

With the 2019 season finished, I wanted to share an update with you all. The last year and a half has been a real struggle mentally and physically for me. Even with all the preventative work and rehab my team and I did, my recurring knee injury has continued to give me problems, and as the season progressed it was becoming more evident that surgery was inevitable. I recently did an ultrasound and luckily the results were better than expected💪🏼💪🏼. The rehab work was successful enough that surgery is not necessary at this stage, however, I will need to undergo a few minor interventions which will keep me off the tennis court for a longer period and unfortunately means I will not be able to compete at the Davis Cup this month 🙁. I am extremely disappointed by this, but I believe in my teammates and will be their most devoted fan 🇭🇷. In the meantime, I will dedicate myself to getting back to form so that I can enter the 2020 season healthier, more prepared, and more motivated than ever. Thank you all for your constant support and I look forward to seeing you back on tour in 2020. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #teamCilic #iznadsvihhrvatska
