Being big was the theme today at Queen’s with three players 6-foot-6 all advancing to the quarterfinal round.
In a decimated draw, the highest remaining seed, Marin Cilic, rolled American qualifier Stefan Kozlov 6-0, 6-4. Cilic, who won the Queen’s title in 2012, lost just one point on first serve in the match.
“Consistency-wise, maybe I’m feeling my best ever,” Cilic said. “I served extremely good today. Controlled most of the rallies.”
Another former champion, Sam Querrey, was also a winner, beating Murray-conqueror Jordan Thompson 7-6(3), 3-6, 6-3.
Russian youngster Daniil Medvedev ended the comeback run of Thanasi Kokkinakis 6-2, 6-2. And former finalist Feliciano Lopez got past Jeremy Chardy.
The quarterfinal line-up tomorrow features Cilic v Donald Young, Querrey v Gilles Muller, Grigor Dimitrov v Medvedev and Tomas Berdych battles Lopez.
