Aegon Championships

Feliciano Lopez won the Queen's Club title in dramatic fashion as the Spaniard saved a match point before defeating Marin Cilic 4-6, 7-6 (7/2), 7-6 (10/8) on Sunday.

The 35-year-old will face Cilic in today's title match at the Wimbledon warm-up event after the Croatian reached his third Queen's final with a 6-3, 5-7, 6-4 victory over Gilles Muller.

Muller has won the first two ATP Tour titles of his career this year, helping him climb to a career-high ranking of 26, and he now has a seven-match winning streak on grass. "I think it was good today that I played against Young, a lefty swinging serve". Five years on he is hoping his opponent is sufficiently well behaved to last the match but unable to stem a run of success for the Croat that suggests even greater spoils on another London lawn across the River Thames might be attainable.

Nevertheless, the first match of the day was between two-time quarterfinalistGilles Muller, who is playing scintillating tennis on grass right now.

Lopez, Cilic and Muller had all reached the semi-finals without dropping serve, so it was a surprise when Cilic began to read Muller's swinging delivery early on and broke in the fifth game of the day's first semi-final.

In the third set, Dimitrov managed to fend off eight break points but still was broken twice as Lopez cruised to the finish line.

Cilic failed to convert his opportunities in the second set, however, and one lapse of concentration at 5-6 blotted his copybook to allow Muller to snatch the second set.

"I am so happy to be in the final here at one of the most special tournaments for me, I have wanted to win this tournament so badly for my whole career and tomorrow I have another chance, so I feel very pleased".

Cilic - the 2012 champion and 2013 runner-up - was supreme on his own serve throughout the match, dropping just four points on his first serve and firing down an impressive 20 aces.

This time he converted as a Cilic forehand landed wide and a visibly relieved Lopez finally was able to celebrate.

He hit back to win the second set, but Cilic delivered the knockout blow with a break in seventh game of the final set and fittingly sealed the victory with an ace.

"I played great, I felt good from the start", said Federer.

Feliciano Lopez is coming off a three sets win over Grigor Dimitrov that took 29 games to decide.

"I know it was going to be a tough match against Gregor, we had a tough final in 2014", said Lopez afterwards in a courtside interview.
