Kyrgios Queen's quest ends, Wimbledon next

Australia's Nick Kyrgios smashed 32 aces to defeat Kyle Edmund at Queen's

Despite soaring temperatures, neither player backed off in a tense deciding set, with Cilic finally earning the first break point opportunities in the eighth game.

The 31-year-old served brilliantly throughout what ultimately proved to be the final set, and forced Cilic to save championship point on his way to holding for 5-5. "I was more kind of like chipping and trying to get it back in play, but it wasn't enough".

Former US Open champion Cilic also lost the 2013 Queen's final and experienced fresh heartache against Federer in this year's Australian Open final.

It was a cathartic moment for Cilic who had finished as the runner-up at Queen's and Wimbledon past year. Credit to him for playing well.

The BBC, who were televising the semifinal match between Kyrgios and Marin Cilic, apologised for that was seen.

But crucially, Cilic saved a match point at 4-5 in the second set, with a thunderous service victor setting the stage for a thrilling tie-break. That's a positive. My body feels pretty good.

Like the world No 8 Kvitova, Rybarikova has fine grass-court pedigree, having reached last year's Wimbledon semi-finals, and it showed in the opener as she seized the advantage.

Wildcard Djokovic seemed agitated at times as Chardy, who has won 12 of 13 matches on grass over the past three weeks, proved a tricky opponent.

The Frenchman resolutely denied Djokovic at 2-2 and 3-3 before the three-time Wimbledon champion finally broke through with some of his best groundstrokes of the match to take a 5-4 lead.

He has a 14-1 winning record over Cilic but might be second-favourite on Sunday with the Croatian in superb form. Djokovic said when asked how he would cope with the power of Cilic's serve. "One in the right hand and one in the left hand!"

Despite being blessed with enormous talent and impressive abilities on the tennis court, the Australian sensation has some way or another managed to turn focus away from the sport and held the limelight, mostly for the wrong reasons.
