Novak Djokovic continues fine form to set up Queen’s final clash with Marin Cilic
Novak Djokovic has reached his first final in nearly a year after beating Jeremy Chardy in the Queen’s Club semi-final.
The Serbian last played a championship match at Eastbourne in 2017 as he struggled to overcome an elbow injury.
However, his form has been slowly picking up in recent weeks, and how he has a final to show for it after a routine 7-6 6-4 win.
Djokovic will face top seed and 2012 champion Marin Cilic in Sunday’s final.
The Croatian won the battle of the big-servers in the other semi-final, as he overcame Nick Krygios 7-6 7-6.
“It’s so special to play here,” said Cilic.
“I’ve played great tennis throughout this week and have another shot at the title.
“I’ll be ready for the final, I’m definitely going to give my best for a trophy.”
