Marin Cilic comes from behind to beat Novak Djokovic in Queen's final

Nick Kyrgios believes Britain's Kyle Edmund can be a Wimbledon threat Nick Kyrgios believes Britain's Kyle Edmund can be a Wimbledon threat

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

I had a little tougher match (against) Sam (Querrey), a lot of movement maybe, just putting a bit more pressure on my foot and things like that.

Cilic, who had missed six break point chances in the first, saved two set points - the second courtesy of a Hawkeye overrule on a forehand that clipped the line - but the 12-time Grand Slam champion kept pushing and eventually converted.

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

Kyrgios continued his playful mood into the match and was spotted focusing more on games with his team in the stands than on his match with Cilic. "But I have to see the positive because I haven't played a final in nearly a year".

Former US Open champion Cilic also lost the 2013 Queen's final and experienced fresh heartache against Federer in this year's Australian Open final.

Djokovic was seeking to win his first title for a year as he battles his way back to his best form after injury.

While Kyrgios will be frustrated, his level during the week augurs well for his Wimbledon prospects.

Cilic can get nervous but served it out comfortably and will fancy his chances of another deep progression at Wimbledon. The Serb returned superbly to force a match point but the Croatian fended it off with some big-serving.

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.

Winning the longest final in Queen's history - at two hours and 57 minutes - was just reward for Cilic's superb week on the lawns of Barons Court, which banked him a cheque for?413,601 ($548,764).

Rybarikova twice broke the Kvitova serve in the opening set and looked a strong candidate to claim the fifth WTA tour title of her career. "As expected a couple of points made the difference in the tiebreaks".
