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."

Murray practiced at Queen's on Friday ahead of next week's grass-court Fever-Tree Championships, delayed a decision until Saturday and then told tournament officials he would be there.

Murray upset by lucky loser in Queen's Club

Murray upset by lucky loser in Queen's Club

Andy Murray suffered a shocking upset by Jordan Thompson, who got into the main draw as a lucky loser, 7-6, 6-2 in the first round.

It was the worst possible preparation for Wimbledon for the defending champion, with the grass-court Grand Slam set to get under way on July 3.

Having reached the French Open semi-finals earlier this month, Murray must have hoped he was back on track after his poor run during an injury-plagued first half of the season.

Nadal to warm up for Wimbledon at Queen's Club

Rafael Nadal will sharpen his grasscourt game at London's Queen's Club ahead of Wimbledon in June, organizers of the Aegon Championships said on Tuesday.

The 14-times grand slam champion, ranked fifth in the world, has fond memories of Queen's, having won the title there in 2008 before going on to beat Roger Federer a few weeks later and claim his first Wimbledon crown.

Defending champion Andy Murray is also confirmed for the traditional warm-up event which starts on June 13.

Murray has genuine threat for Queens title

Murray has genuine threat for Queens title

Andy Murray’s expected stroll in the tennis odds to the 2013 Aegon Championships title in June is under threat after Tomas Berdych confirmed he will also play at Queen’s Club this season.

Murray won the tournament in 2010 and 2011 yet crashed out in the second round to Nicolas Mahut over three sets last season, leaving his Wimbledon preparations in tatters.

Although the Scot went on to make the final on Centre Court a month later, the lack of playing time on grass leading up to the Championships must have irked him and he will not want to replicate that scenario this season.

Not that Murray’s path to the title will be easy, for with Berdych set to play the Queens trophy is very much up for contention. The Czech is determined to win Wimbledon himself after making the final in 2010 and reportedly sees Queens as perfect preparation.

Murray to play at Queen’s Club ahead of Wimbledon

Andy Murray will be back at the Queen’s Club in June as a grass-court warmup for Wimbledon and the London Olympics.

Wimbledon begins a week after Queen’s, which starts June 11. The Olympic tennis tournament will also be held at the All England Club.

Murray will not have to face Rafael Nadal at Queen’s this year after the Spaniard pulled out of the tournament, citing stringent British tax laws that could cause the player to lose money by playing the weeklong tournament.

Queen's Men’s final postponed until Monday

Queen's Men’s final postponed until Monday

The final at Queen’s Club grasscourt tournament between Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was postponed until Monday because of heavy rain.

Murray is bidding to win the title for a second time following his triumph two years ago.
The Scott killed time by playing table tennis against Tsonga and exchanging banter with fellow players on his Twitter feed.

In one message to world number two Novak Djokovic, Murray suggested the Serb came to Queen’s for a sing-along with the American doubles duo Bob and Mike Bryan.

Djokovic replied: “Another idea: Go out on court with water polo caps and speedo’s…I will get a ball!”

Tsonga ousts Nadal in London

Tsonga ousts Nadal in London

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga upset Rafael Nadal 6-7, 6-4, 6-1 in the quarterfinals at Queen’s Club.

Tsonga fired 25 aces and kept Nadal off-balance with his powerful baseline game and net play.

Rain interrupted the match as it was just starting and Nadal remained on his chair for several minutes and then signed autographs before returning to the locker room.

Nadal saved a break point in the sixth game, and had three break points at 5-5 that was not able to convert. They reached the tie break where the Spaniard won the last five points to seal the set.

The pair exchanged breaks to start the second set but Tsonga broke again to lead 5-4 and served out the set.

In the third, the Frenchman broke for 1-0 and he dominated the remainder of the match.

“Probably after losing the second set mentally I lost my concentration,” Nadal said. “The negative thing is I lost. The positive thing is I have few days off and can stop a little bit mentally. I can be a little bit more relaxed, because every day I play with pressure.”

"I didn't play badly at the beginning," reflected Nadal. "He was serving really well. [In the] second set I had my chances, in my opinion. First game [of the third set] mentally [I was] a little bit tired. [I have played] a lot of matches in a row. And after that with the break in the third [set] it was a mountain for me to come back into the match.”

Tsonga will face British wild card James Ward, who came through a dramatic encounter with France’s Adrian Mannarino 6-2, 6-7(14), 6-4 to reach his first ATP World Tour semi-final.
