Marin Cilic vs. Feliciano Lopez 2017 Aegon Championships Final Pick, Odds, Prediction

Tennis Marin Cilic marches on at Queen’s in London

Feliciano Lopez won the Queen's Club title in dramatic fashion as the Spaniard saved a match point before defeating Marin Cilic 4-6, 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (10/8) on Sunday.

The fourth-seeded Cilic certainly looks the fresher after four singles matches this week, with Lopez initially appearing jaded against Dimitrov following his tough three-set win over Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals.

Cilic, a victor at Queen's in 2012, had coasted through the opening set against Muller, who was broken for the first time in this year's tournament in game six.

But Cilic, who won 78 percent of his service points, held the edge on the rare occasions when the serving slugfest gave way to a prolonged rally. "I've been waiting so long", Lopez said.

"There's no better situation than to go into Wimbledon after winning here".

A beaten finalist in 2014 when he failed to capitalize on a match point against Grigor Dimitrov, Lopez once more displayed his grass-court skills ahead of Wimbledon. Notably, it was the former, who dumped out Wawrinka with a straight set win over the Swiss star in his tournament opener.

Spain's Lopez, ranked 32 in the world, said: 'I can not believe I have finally won this tournament. Cilic has been broken just once this tournament and has provided just two break chances overall. "Tomorrow is going to be a tough match, but I'm looking forward to it". "I was serving for the match again".

Having forced a tiebreaker, Lopez found another gear and produced faultless tennis to take it 7-2.

Jamie Murray and Bruno Soares were trailing Cilic and Marcin Matkowski 1-6 5-3 in the doubles semi-finals when play was suspended because of rain.

Lopez cracked at 4-5, firing a forehand wide on break point to hand Cilic the first set. "I was mixing it up really well and just playing really smart in some critical points".

"I think also Feli is playing with good confidence, he played last week in the final (in Stuttgart), so for me it is still extremely important to keep up with my good tennis and keep myself on the track".
