SIX aces already for Marin Cilic. That's what you get in a battle of big servers. Looks like this is headed to tiebreak...

6-5 to Cilic!

How fast are these serves? 

And it's raining aces down on Centre Court. Don't think anyone's surprised by that I reckon.

5-5 in the set.

Neck and neck here. Big forehand winners and a bit of running at the baseline, a couple of net tries by Cilic but mostly these two are sticking to a standard game.

And their games are quite similar, too. 

4-3 Cilic, who's ever so slightly better on first serve.
...
Querrey, who's had three 5-set matches in a row, is fleet of foot today and bouncing around the baseline to give Cilic a bit of exercise.

It's proving effective and a great forehand down the line is out of Cilic's reach.

3 games all in the first set!
