Andy Murray to face Stan Wawrinka at Nature Valley International

Cilic's booming serve had been enough to see him past the mercurial Nick Kyrgios on Saturday, but it didn't look like his power would be enough against an in-form Djokovic in Sunday's show-piece match.

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.

He saved a first break point at 1-1 but then needed to save five more at 3-3, and was lucky that Cilic could not execute on any of them when given the chance.

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

"It was a special win for me because a year ago I had a match point and didn't convert it", Cilic said.

He had been out for nearly a year with a hip injury that required surgery.

Inspired by that escape act, Cilic powered through the deciding set to leave Djokovic shell-shocked as he won the Wimbledon warm-up event for the first time since 2012.

He could not quite reach that level again but was still happy with his grasscourt form having lost narrowly to Roger Federer in the Stuttgart semis last week and beaten former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray for the first time at Queen's.

Jonathan Davis, owner of a wealth management firm, said the European Union was "on a hiding to nothing" by clashing with Mr Trump. Its biggest target has been China, against which President Trump this week ordered new tariffs on $200 billion worth of goods.

Just when Novak Djokovic looked set to position himself perfectly for another run at Wimbledon he let slip the chance of a first ATP Tour title in almost a year. I'm just glad to keep this going, and I don't want to celebrate too much.

Slowly, reminiscent of the Djokovic of old, the Serb began to tug the match back towards him, although his forehand lacked the penetration of his opponent.

Firing some superb returns, he converted his third set point when Cilic netted a backhand. I played a lot of three-setters and a lot of tennis.

World No.6 Cilic did not offer up one break point opportunity in their one hour and 25 minute meeting.
