Marin Cilic wins the Queen’s Club Championship
1pt 6-1 Betfred, Coral, Ladbrokes
Veteran Marin Cilic last won the Queen’s Club Championship in 2018 but showed he’s not over with a run into the last four of the French Open earlier this month and could be a great bet to play in the Wimbledon warm-up to triumph.
Cilic knocked aside the likes of Daniil Medvedev and Andrey Rublev on his way to the semi-finals at Roland Garros, earning a decent break ahead of Queen, whom he has won twice in his career.
The Croatian is a dangerous player on grass, winning 77 of his 108 games on the surface and is also a former Wimbledon finalist.
He can count on his experience and seems to be the best overall bet in an open market.
The withdrawal of Carlos Alcaraz, who would have been the tournament’s top-ranked player, has made for a tight field and Matteo Berrettini could also attract players’ attention.
The Italian will enter the tournament after the ATP Stuttgart final, is the defending champion at Queen’s and reached the Wimbledon final last year.
But his road to the final will not be easy as Brit Dan Evans awaits him in his opening game and a resurgent Andy Murray another possible opponent later in the tournament.
Top seed Casper Ruud is another who could be on players’ radar after a straight bet but his form at the French Open could be misleading.
The plucky Norwegian reached his maiden Grand Slam final in Paris but is far less proficient on grass, winning just two of his six games on the surface since turning pro in 2019.
