LONDON -- Defending champion Marin Cilic upset second-seeded Tomas Berdych 7-5, 7-6 (4) to reach the Queen's Club semifinals on Friday.

The fifth-seeded Croatian was under pressure in both sets. He faced a break point at 4-4 but Berdych netted his return, and Cilic failed to convert two set points at 5-4 before Berdych made a forehand error on a third break point at 6-5.

In the second set, Berdych held one break point at 2-2 and another at 4-4, but Cilic once again held off the threat before claiming victory in the tiebreaker.
