Top-seed Marin Cilic will take on Nick Kyrgios for a place in the Fever-Tree Championships final at Queen’s Club, after both won their respective quarter-final matches on Friday.

Cilic, winner of the prestigious event in 2012 and runner-up in 2013 and last year, marched past 2010 champion Sam Querrey 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 in 78 minutes to fire another warning to his Wimbledon rivals.

Nick Kyrgios continued his impressive week at Queen’s by dethroning 2017 champion Feliciano Lopez 7-6 (7-5) 7-6 (7-3).

Croatian big-hitter Cilic will be feeling confident ahead of Wimbledon and having buried Fernando Verdasco and Gilles Muller in a barrage of aces, the world No 6 inflicted similar punishment on fifth-seed Querrey.

Kyrgios blasted 32 aces for the second successive match as he ended Lopez’s reign as Queen’s champion with his latest astonishing display of big-serving.

The world No 21 now has a tournament-leading 82 aces in his three matches at Queen’s this week.

A resurgent Novak Djokovic, looking for his first Queen’s Club title, plays Frenchman Adrian Mannarino later, while Jeremy Chardy takes on American youngster Frances Tiafoe.
