Former Wimbledon finalist Marin Cilic into Queen's last eight

LONDON: Marin Cilic made it into the last eight of the Queen's grass-court competition on Wednesday, with a 7-6 (8/6) 7-5 win over Alexander Bublik.

This occasion goes about as a get ready for Wimbledon where Croatia's Cilic went the whole way to the last in 2017 preceding losing to Roger Federer in straight sets.

The 33-year-old Cilic has been in great type of late, progressing to the last four of this season's French Open prior to losing to Casper Ruud.

In any case, Denis Shapovalov, a Wimbledon semi-finalist last year, was beaten in the main round at Queen's on Wednesday, the 6th seed going down in three sets to Tommy Paul of the United States.

Paul took the primary set 6-4 just for Shapovalov to draw level by requiring the second set 6-2.

In any case, Paul held his nerve to win the decider 6-4.

Finnish qualifier Emil Ruusuvuori beat Britain's Jack Draper 6-2, 7-6 (7/2) to progress into the quarter-finals.

World number 56 Ruusuvuori was in fine structure, hitting 29 victors while constraining nine break focuses.

Reigning champ Matteo Berrettini and three-time Grand Slam title victor Stan Wawrinka will attempt to join Cilic and Ruusuvuori in the last eight when they face Denis Kudla and world number 35 Paul on Thursday.

Without any focuses on offer at Wimbledon this late spring, because of the choice by the All England Club to boycott Russian and Belarussian contenders following Russia's intrusion of Ukraine, the Queen's Club occasion is one of last open doors for players to help their rankings in front of the hard-court season.
