In a suspended match, Milos Raonic broke late thanks to two double faults and finally finished off Nick Kyrgios in three sets Wednesday in Queen’s 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-4. The match was resumed today at the start of the third set.
The win also marked the first for the new coaching tandem of John McEnroe and Raonic.
In another match scheduled for Tuesday, John Isner used his booming serve to crush 25 aces and knock out former Wimbledon semifinalist Juan Martin del Potro 7-6(2), 6-4. Isner recovered from a 0-40 hole in his first service game to stay in the set, which he eventually won breaking the Argentine in his finals service game.
“Going into this match, I didn’t expect to win 6-2, 6-2. It’s grass court tennis. And especially with how I play, I figured it could be a very close match and it was,” Isner said. “It definitely came down, just as a lot of my matches do, to a few points here or there. I thought I played them pretty well.”
Isner will now meet Gilles Muller Thursday.
Top seed Andy Murray also returns tomorrow against countryman Aljaz Bedene.
2012 champion Maric Cilic ended Janko Tipsarevic’s hopes and Steve Johnson eliminated Adrian Mannarino.
In the big upset of the day, British youngster Kyle Edmund stunned No. 8 seed Gilles Simon 6-4, 3-6, 6-1.
