Marin Cilic hopes another good run at Queen's Club will stand him in good stead for Wimbledon.

The top-seeded Cilic was champion in 2012 and runner-up in 2013 and 2017. He came close at Wimbledon last year, losing to Roger Federer after suffering from bad blisters in the final.

He made a winning start at Queen's Club on Monday, beating Fernando Verdasco of Spain 6-3, 6-4.

"You can't live on the glory from last year, you have to show that again," Cilic said. "The grass-court season, it's short but it's sweet as well."
