LONDON (AP) — Top seed Matteo Berrettini started and finished with aces to get past Dan Evans and into the Queen's Club semifinals on Friday.
A day after beating five-time champion Andy Murray, Berrettini also knocked out the current British No. 1 after a nearly five-hour rain delay 7-6 (5), 6-3.
Berrettini's third career semifinal on grass will be against fourth-seeded Alex de Minaur of Australia, who defeated two-time champion Marin Cilic 3-6, 6-3, 6-4.
De Minaur, a first-time Queen's semifinalist, ended the seven-match winning run of Cilic, the winner on Stuttgart grass last weekend.
The other semifinal pits last surviving Brit Cameron Norrie against second-seeded Denis Shapovalov of Canada or Frances Tiafoe of the United States. Shapovalov led 6-3 when play was suspended because of darkness.
