Marin Cilic resists Novak Djokovic comeback to claim Queen's title

  • Andy Murray to face Stan Wawrinka at Nature Valley International

Once the post-match frustration has dissipated, Djokovic can feel more than satisfied with his four wins at the Fever-Tree Championships, including a 6-4, 6-1 thrashing of second seed Grigor Dimitrov that represented his first victory over a top-five opponent in nearly 18 months.

Djokovic is only the 10th man in the professional era to reach 800 match wins, and while Jimmy Connors' 1,256 - not to mention Roger Federer's still-growing 1,156 - is still a long way off, those who were beginning to write off the former world No. 1 and dominant force might need a rethink.

Victory for Cilic is his second at Queen's, but this win will taste far sweeter than his first back in 2012, when his opponent in the final - David Nalbandian - was disqualified for injuring a line judge.

The win was the Croatian's 18th ATP title and just his second win against Djokovic in 16 matches.

"The last couple of weeks, I feel pretty untouchable on serve".

Kyrgios, who beat British pair Andy Murray and Kyle Edmund this week, was satisfied with his work after he followed up a run to the final in Stuttgart last week with one to the last four at Queen's.

There's A Good Reason Why Trippier Didn't Celebrate After Kane's Goal
Another user added: "We totally dominated the second half and the pressure eventually paid off. Apart from one player; Kieran Trippier . "We don't have a Gazza, Gerrard or Lampard".

"It's normally not like this for a tennis player in my ranking to win so many matches like this. I can take away a lot of positives". "Hopefully, " said Cilic of a potential double grass-court triumph. He was serving more than 30 aces in a match and both of those matches were in two sets.

Winning the longest final in Queen's history - at two hours and 57 minutes - was just reward for Cilic's superb week on the lawns of Barons Court, which banked him a cheque for?413,601 ($548,764).

It was something of a return to form for the 12-time grand slam champion this week though, and he could easily have won in what was his 99th career final, but he missed that match point in the second set. "You know, even though I'm really happy I'm in the finals, I just want to keep building this momentum".

He lost to Italian Marco Cecchinato in the French Open quarterfinals and has made only one other semifinal in 2018.

Videos picked up by fans show Kyrgios playing the circle game with his camp, clearly more interested in having a laugh than trying to break down Cilic's serve.

"I think the key will be obviously try to return well, because that's his biggest weapon, his serve".
