Cilic into Queens final after beating Querrey

Cilic into Queens final after beating Querrey

Marin Cilic beat Sam Querrey 6-3, 3-6, 6-3 to reach the final at Queen's Club in London.

Cilic will play the winner of the encounter between David Nalbandian and Grigor Dimitrov.

The world number 25 has been so dominant this week that he had only dropped serve twice during his three previous matches.

The sixth seed showed remarkable resolve to fend off nine break points in an epic third game that lasted 20 minutes.

Querrey initially seemed shell-shocked by his failure to convert so many break opportunities.

He struggled to find any rhythm and a tame forehand from the American on the first of three break points handed Cilic the chance to serve out the set.

Querrey recovered in the second set and broke in the second game.

He was broken right back but then took the set after breaking for a second time.

A double-fault by Querrey on break point gifted Cilic a 2-0 lead in the final set.

Querrey broke back with Cilic just two games from victory, but the Croatian broke again and then serving out the win.
