Marin Cilic celebrates victory on the opening day of the tournament

Defending champion Marin Cilic flew through his opening match of the Fever-Tree Championships at Queen’s Club with a 6-1 7-6 (7-5) victory over Christian Garin.

Cilic, who beat Novak Djokovic to take the title 12 months ago, raced through the first set in just 21 minutes before being met by a stronger challenge in the second.

The Croatian was pushed into a tie-break and went down by a mini-break before he regained his composure and secured victory.
