Alex de Minaur v Marin Cilic Head to Head
Cilic won their only previous meeting at the U.S. Open in 2018, winning the Round of 32 match in a thrilling five-setter.
De Minaur Eases Into the Last Eight
World No. 22 Alex de Minuar eased into the quarterfinals at Queen’s Club with a straight sets win over fellow Aussie John Millman in the second round on Wednesday.
The fourth seed De Minaur needed just 64 minute to dispatch Millman 6-1, 6-3.
The 22-year-old De Minaur had come into the tournament with a 13-12 record this year, which included a fourth career title in the season opener in Antalya.
De Minaur has been inconsistent since that title success. He, however, reached the quarterfinal in Stuttgart by winning his Round of 16 match against Jordan Thompson, but fell to Jurij Rodionov in the last eight. Both of those matches were three-set affairs.
The Aussie, who improved to 7-7 overall on grass, faces a massive test in the last eight against an opponent who thrives on the surface.
Cilic’s Unbeaten Run on Grass Continues
Facing De Minaur in the quarterfinal will be two-time Queen’s champion and World No. 37 Marin Cilic, who improved to 7-0 on grass this year with a straight sets win over eighth seed Fabio Fognini in the Round of 16 on Wednesday.
The 32-year-old Croatian, who ended a three-year title drought by winning the final in Stuttgart last week, needed an hour and 30 minutes to beat the Italian 6-3, 7-6 (7-4).
Cilic served 17 aces, won 82% first-serve points and converted both the break points that he had in the match to move into the quarterfinals.
The 2014 U.S. Open champion, who defeated Felix Auger-Aliassime in the Stuttgart final, had begun the tournament with a tough three-set victory over Austria’s Sebastian Ofner, defeating the qualifier 6-2, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-4).
Cilic won the Queen’s title in 2012 by beating David Nalbandian and then won his second in 2018 by defeating Novak Djokovic in the final. He also reached the finals in 2013 and 2017, losing to Andy Murray and Feliciano Lopez respectively.
de Minaur v Cilic Prediction and Tip
Despite being stretched in the first round, Cilic has looked very comfortable on grass this year and the 2017 Wimbledon finalist will be a favourite to win this contest. Expect De Minaur to put a strong resistance but Cilic to win.
