Marin Cilic comes from behind to beat Novak Djokovic to win Queen's

Kyle Edmund Queen's Club hopes were dashed by Nick Kyrgios

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.

"So for the first part of the match I was not really confident to actually hit the return", Djokovic said.

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

"I had a great time with him for 11 years, taking him on when he was really young - 18 or 19, and that was one of the best times because he was at an age when he was improving", Vajda told Catherine Whitaker on Amazon Prime Video, who are broadcasting at Queen's before taking over as sole TV rights-holders for the US Open in the United Kingdom later this year.

"It's a great occasion".

"I thought it was a pretty high-level match from both players. One in the right hand and one in the left hand!"

After struggling in the first four months of the season due to a long break he was forced to take previous year, Djokovic has found his form in Rome, Paris and here in London, heading to Wimbledon as one of the favorites together with Roger Federer and Marin Cilic.

He hasn't earned a major title since competing his career Grand Slam by winning the 2016 French Open.

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.

And, after recording four successive wins at Queen's, Djokovic will hope he can copy his rival's trend when Wimbledon gets underway on July 2.

Brazil to kick off this 17/2 World Cup treble
Switzerland came out with an impressive draw against Brazil and will look to keep the momentum going against Serbia. Brady's wife, Gisele Bundchen, is a Brazil native and die-hard supporter of the nation's worldwide soccer team.

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

The BBC, who were televising the semi-final match between Kyrgios and Marin Cilic, apologised for what was broadcast.

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

Djokovic, a three-time Wimbledon victor, had hoped his 99th career final - and first for a year - would be a significant landmark in his bid to return to the top after a wretched run.

Cilic, whose determination has not always matched his considerable talent, heads for Wimbledon with spirits high and excellent prospects of reaching the final there again after the huge disappointment of surrendering to foot blisters and the brilliance of Roger Federer in the 2017 final.

Cilic powered into his fourth Queen's Club final with the win.

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

"It's special to play here and I've played great tennis throughout the week and it's great to have another shot at the title", the 2012 Queen's champion said.

As the set sped towards another tiebreaker, the pressure was beginning to tell on Kyrgios as he yelled "I can't focus". "I'll be ready for the final, I'm definitely going to give my best for a trophy".
