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."

Cilic eyeing world number one ranking

Cilic eyeing world number one ranking

Marin Cilic said on Sunday he has his sights set on the top of the world rankings after his recent rise to number three.

Defending champion Rafael Nadal has to win the Monte Carlo Masters this week to retain the world number one spot ahead of Roger Federer.

But with Federer once again skipping the claycourt season, former US Open winner Cilic believes becoming the world's best player is a realistic goal after an excellent start to the year.

"I think it (No. 1 ranking) is (within reach), it's where I'm aiming at, it's my ultimate goal," said Cilic.

Marin Cilic survived a tough examination by Vasek Pospisil to reach the fourth round of the Miami Open with a 7-5 7-6(4) victory after nearly two hours on Sunday.

But the tournament, with world number one Roger Federer already ousted, lost another highly-ranked player when Grigor Dimitrov, the third seed, was taken down 6-4 6-4 by Frenchman Jeremy Chardy.

Juan Martin del Potro, the fifth seed, was more fortunate, winning his 13th consecutive match by defeating Kei Nishikori 6-2 6-2.

The big-hitting Cilic fired six aces and saved all three break points he faced against Pospisil, but the 77th-ranked Canadian made it more difficult than the Croat probably expected.
