Feliciano Lopez battles back against Marin Cilic for victory at Queen's

Feliciano Lopez battles back against Marin Cilic for victory at Queen's”

Due to his lack of confidence helped Muller to win the second set.

Cilic brought up match point with an ace but Lopez saved it when he cut off the Croat's attempted pass with a stretching volley. In the first round, Muller came through in a tight match against the Georgian player, Nikoloz Basilishvili, in 3 sets.

His conversion of break points (two of 13) was disappointing but proof that Cilic's return game, against one of the game's best servers, is also in fine fettle.

Even Lopez couldn't break him and Cilic said: "Looking on the whole week, it was great tennis for me".

The world number seven has yet to drop a set in three matches en route to his fourth semi-final appearance at the Wimbledon warm-up event in west London.

Croatia's Marin Cilic celebrates during his quarter final match against USA's Donald Young.

There was a mini upset in the first round of the Antalya Open as Adrian Mannarino defeated seventh seed Borna Coric 7-5 6-4, while Steve Darcis needed three sets to overcome Denis Istomin. In the victory, Lopez won 87 percent of his first serve points and 53 percent of his second serve points.

"It's been a great run this week, especially today saving a match point against a great player like Tomas".

Lifting the trophy at the Wimbledon warm-up event would have been ideal preparation for the Croatian ahead of the grass-court Grand Slam, which starts on July 3. Notably, it was the former, who dumped out Wawrinka with a straight set win over the Swiss star in his tournament opener. Lopez is 2-2 in his career in final appearances on grass and has lost five of his last seven final appearances overall.

Meanwhile in Halle the top seed Roger Federer booked his place in the final of the Gerry Weber Open for the 11th time after seeing off Russian Karen Khachanov 6-4 7-6 (5).

It was Lopez's sixth career title and third on grass.

Now by his own admission and more complete and mature player, the 28-year-old who joined the elite club of Grand Slam champions by winning... This will be their third meeting on grass.

Regardless of the form of his rivals, Cilic can be confident of making some waves at Wimbledon if he serves with the accuracy and power he showed at Queen's. It's just that simple.

A rain delay midway through the second set broke his rhythm though and Dimitrov seized his chance. "All those top-five guys are definitely wonderful players so to even be close is a great challenge and big motivation".
