Zagreb, Croatia (SportsNetwork.com) - Croatian crowd favorite and reigning champion Marin Cilic was an easy first-round winner Monday at the Zagreb Indoors tennis tournament.

The fifth-seeded former top-10 star handled wild card fellow countryman Mate Delic 6-4, 6-4 at Dom Sportova.

Cilic whipped Austrian Jurgen Melzer in last year's finale to capture his third Zagreb title in five years. He also titled here back-to-back in 2009 and 2010.

This week's top seeds are German Tommy Haas and Russian Mikhail Youzhny, who was the Zagreb champion two years ago.
