Relentless Cilic edges Kyrgios to set up Djokovic final

Relentless Cilic edges Kyrgios to set up Djokovic final

Both defeats were painful for Cilic, who lost a final set tie-break against Feliciano Lopez at Queen's and broke down in tears during his injury-plagued Wimbledon loss to Roger Federer. "I have to keep my expectation very low, considering my results in the last 12 months".

I had a little tougher match (against) Sam (Querrey), a lot of movement maybe, just putting a bit more pressure on my foot and things like that.

A rampant Djokovic conceded just one point on his first serve during the second set and looked favourite to close out the contest in the ninth game but Cilic responded with a booming serve out wide to save match point. "I was more kind of like chipping and trying to get it back in play, but it wasn't enough".

Cilic said, 'Just before the tournament in Wimbledon, I went to see the specialist for a pedicure at Wimbledon, and the lady helped me a lot.

Murray had not played competitively since a Wimbledon quarter-final defeat against Sam Querrey past year as he was beset by a hip problem which eventually required surgery in Australia in January.

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. "I don't care", he said.

After denying any connection to the murder, Soldier Kidd suspiciously deleted his Instagram account. This is what led to internet sleuths to connect Solider Kidd and Solider Jojo to the shooting.

But it was the double fault midway through the match which Djokovic feels cost him so dearly. Djokovic said when asked how he would cope with the power of Cilic's serve.

Firing some superb returns, he converted his third set point when Cilic netted a backhand. He needed an ace to save break point in the eighth game, could do little about the angled forehand around the net that gave Cilic another chance and then dumped a tired forehand.

World No.6 Cilic did not offer up one break point opportunity in their one hour and 25 minute meeting.

He then served it out to love to claim his second title at Queen's.

But Kvitova proved a different proposition for the remainder of the match, breaking twice in the second set while having to save only a single break point against her serve.
