Marin Cilic into Queen‘s semi-finals with win over Sam Querry

Marin Cilic marches into Queen‘s semi-finals with routine win over Sam Querrey to set up Nick Kyrgios clash

Croatian top seed Marin Cilic marched past Sam Querrey into the semi-finals of the ATP 500 Fever-Tree championships at Queen‘s Club on Friday, winning 7-6(3), 6-2 in little more than an hour.

The battle of the big-servers went to an inevitable tiebreak in a first set in which break point chances were few and far between, although Cilic did fail to convert a set point when American Querrey served at 4-5.

Cilic, winner of the prestigious Wimbledon warm-up event in 2012 and runner-up in 2013 and last year, ran through the tie-break and surged clear thereafter.

He won nine points on his way to a 4-0 lead and was untouchable on serve as he sealed victory in 78 minutes.

Cilic face Nick Kyrgios after his smashing victory over Spanish defending champion Feliciano Lopez in Saturday‘s semi-final. The Australian fired 32 aces in a 7-6, 7-6 win.

A resurgent Novak Djokovic, looking for his first Queen‘s Club title, beat Frenchman Adrian Mannarino in straight sets.
