Kyrgios Queen's quest ends, Wimbledon next

Kyrgios won through in three sets to continue his fine form on grass

Djokovic will play top seed Marin Cilic on Sunday in the Serb's first final since he won the grass-court tournament at Eastbourne 12 months ago.

"It was very pleasing to go through to the final".

"I will play with two racquets!"

"It's a great occasion". Obviously I served really, really well. "He's starting to play better", Cilic added. "One in the right hand and one in the left hand!"

The Serb has endured a barren 12 months due to a combination of a nagging elbow injury previous year and poor form in 2018.

But the world No 6 survived and then stormed back from 4-1 down to take the second set tie-break.

"I mean, the grand slams are totally different".

The 12-time Grand Slam champion is more accustomed to fighting for the sport's biggest prizes.

He had already spoiled Andy Murray's first appearance after 11 months on the sidelines with a hip injury when he beat the five-time Queen's victor in the first round on Tuesday.

Cilic, though, has had little success against Djokovic, winning just one of 15 meetings.

Djokovic had won all 10 of their encounters without dropping a single one of their 24 sets.

Although Kyrgios escaped a code violation, the BBC, broadcasting the match live, were forced to apologise after his expletives were picked up by their microphones.

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.

Cilic, 29, is bidding to win Queen's for the second time after lifting the trophy in 2012 and finishing as runner-up in 2013 and 2017.

Kyrgios can jump up to a career-high ranking of #12 with a victory at the historic Wimbledon leadup event.

But former US Open champion Cilic held his nerve in two tie-breaks and punished a handful of key errors from Kyrgios.

Switzerland defeated Serbia 2-1 in the World Cup match on Friday and before the match, in his post-match press conference, Novak Djokovic had said that he would exchange messages with the Swiss players Stan Wawrinka and Roger Federer.

"Nick is serving so good and it was tough to get a look on the service returns". I was maybe a bit more lucky in those situations and composed. Clear on court violation (of a water bottle) if ever I saw one'.
