  • Andy Murray to face Stan Wawrinka at Nature Valley International

A high-level showdown full of thundering serves boiled down to two tiebreaks in which the ice-cool Cilic proved the more composed player to set up a Sunday showdown with former world No.1 Novak Djokovic.

The BBC again issued a live apology to viewers after Nick Kyrgios was busted simulating a sex act at the Queen's Club Championship.

Kyrgios, ranked 21, had served 82 aces on his way to the semi-final and was in scintillating form against defending champion Feliciano Lopez on Friday.

"I played great tennis, managed to win, managed to find a way to win, and feeling definitely very strong for coming weeks".

Cilic found himself under the cosh at the start of the second, with Djokovic looking to finish him off, but the 2017 Wimbledon runner-up held his nerve to deny him two chances to break.

Trump tells Republicans to stop 'wasting their time on immigration'
But the president showed no sign of softening in public remarks, even as Congress failed again to pass immigration reform . Trump said he told them on the campaign trail he would never let them down, and they've been working together since.

"Other than that, I was in it, and credit to him for just going for it and playing well".

Cilic said, 'Just before the tournament in Wimbledon, I went to see the specialist for a pedicure at Wimbledon, and the lady helped me a lot.

Djokovic also spurred a match point in the second set but there was little he could have done as Cilic defended it with an ace.

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. That's a positive. My body feels pretty good.

The in-form Chardy had won 12 of his previous 13 matches but the Frenchman was still left without a win - or even a set - against Djokovic after their 11th career meeting.

Asian shares, oil fall as U.S.-China trade spat escalates
Taken together, the two measures would raise the effective price on almost half of all imports from China into the U.S. Trump's latest move, as Washington fights trade battles on several fronts, was unexpectedly swift and sharp.

The Serb was just a point away from the title at 5-4 up in the second, while he squandered a 4-1 lead in the subsequent tiebreak.

"It's special to play here and I've played great tennis throughout the week and it's great to have another shot at the title", the 2012 Queen's champion said.

One thing is for sure, he certainly has the talent, but will he ever have the right mentality?
