  • Posted: Jun 18, 2021

The quarter-finals at the cinch Championships will get underway at 4:15 p.m. local time after they were delayed on Friday due to rain in London. Play was meant to commence at midday with a clash between fourth-seeded Australian Alex de Minaur and former two-time titlist Marin Cilic on centre court. After a four-hour delay, their match will now take place on court one. 

Top seed Matteo Berrettini, who defeated former champion Andy Murray at the Queen’s Club on Thursday, is set to face another Brit, Dan Evans after the sixth seed overcame Adrian Mannarino. This match is scheduled to commence on centre court at 4:15 p.m. local time.

British pair Cameron Norrie and 19-year-old Jack Draper are also scheduled to be in action later after Berrettini’s match, in what will be their first ATP Head2Head meeting. It is the first time Britain has had three or more singles players in the quarter-finals at The Queen’s Club in the Open Era.

Lastly, second seed Denis Shapovalov is due to face American Frances Tiafoe on court one, with Roland Garros doubles champions Pierre-Hugues Herbert and Nicolas Mahut’s match against Marcus Daniell and Philipp Oswald cancelled.
