Djokovic hungry for more after 800th career win

Novak Djokovic suggested he has not the highest chances to win Wimbledon, despite he had two great straight sets wins against John Millman and Grigor Dimitrov. He played finals 's-Hertogenbosch, I think.

If Murray reaches the second round he will face British number one Kyle Edmund, who has a bye and is the second seed at the event. It's obviously very positive and I'm thrilled. He deserved to win and came up with some big shots. "I just love to keep on going and see where it takes me". I haven't been in any finals for a year, so this felt great. I'm grateful, as well, that I'm able to play so many matches and to win so many matches in my career.

The winner's upbeat demeanour seemed more convincing. I mean, he played Querrey today and looked really, really good. I have never won a round here. Then, as he sought peace of mind away from the court, his serving elbow began to ache to the point of distraction, he withdrew from the Tour in despair.

And so he reaches 800 wins, and will be the favourite to make it 801 in the semi-finals, where he will play another Frenchman, Jeremy Chardy, ranked 61, who beat Frances Tiafoe, 6-4 6-4, in under and hour and a half.

The world No. 21 showed an array of shots that will make him a risky opponent in the semifinal as he produced a magical lob, a rasping backhand passing shot and a classic drop shot to unnerve Lopez and take the first set tie-break.

Cilic arrived here with a proud record on the Queen's Club grass.

Novak Djokovic of Serbia celebrates winning his quarterfinal tennis match against Adrian Mannarino of France at the Queen's Club tennis tournament in London, Friday, June 22, 2018. "And definitely, it was an extremely tough match", Cilic said. He had to scramble to save match point at 4-5 and, from that point on, grew in self-belief.

"I was just trying to stay mentally in it".

The win was the Croatian's 18th ATP title and just his second win against Djokovic in 16 matches.

Petra Kvitova hit back from a set down to beat Magdalena Rybarikova and retain her Nature Valley Classic title in Birmingham.

Victory for Cilic is his second at Queen's, but this win will taste far sweeter than his first back in 2012, when his opponent in the final - David Nalbandian - was disqualified for injuring a line judge.

"Things turned around from last year to this year. One in the right hand and one in the left hand!" But Djokovic grew in confidence, breaking back twice to take the set.
