Andy Murray moved a step closer to winning a fifth Queen’s title on Friday dismissing countryman Kyle Edmund 6-4, 3-6, 6-1.
“Kyle was hitting the ball big throughout the match. At the end of that second set, he was going for it,” Murray said of the 21-year-old. “When he’s landing first serves and then getting the first shot of the rally on his forehand, he can dictate a lot of the points. If you want to get to the top of the game, you need to have weapons and he has them.”
Cilic also needed three sets in a win over American Steve Johnson.
“It was very tough,” said Cilic. “I think Steve was playing pretty well today. He was serving really well. He was giving me a lot of trouble with his serve.”
Murray leads Cilic 10-2. Both are former US Open champions.
Milos Raonic remained perfect under the guidance of John McEnroe. The Canadian fireballer blew out Roberto Bautista Agut 6-4, 6-1.
Roanic will meet Bernard Tomic who beat Gilles Muller. Raonic has not dropped a set to the Australian in three prior meetings.
