Cameron Norrie outclassed by Stan Wawrinka


In other first round action, top seed Marin Cilic made a flying start to his bid for another strong grass-court campaign with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Spanish veteran Fernando Verdasco.

The 185-centimeter Czech with the superbly steep serve who appeared to have the world at her feet when she became No. 1 past year, was outplayed by 19th-ranked Magdalena Rybarikova 6-2, 6-3.

British number two Cameron Norrie will play three-time Grand Slam victor Stan Wawrinka at Queen's Club on Monday.

I need to be really patient with myself, to accept less in a way, because when you win Grand Slam and especially me, I always expect so much from myself and always push myself to the maximum and never really happy with what I'm doing, so when you be out on the tour so long, you need to a little bit put your expectation a little bit lower and accept that, because it takes time.

The 2012 champion lost just four service points and broke three times to power his way past Spaniard Verdasco and will now face Gilles Muller, who beat Denis Shapovalov 7-6 (9-7) 7-6 (8-6).

Wawrinka needed just shy of half an hour to pocket the opener, breaking twice, and was hardly troubled in the second set as he set up a second round match against American fifth seed Sam Querrey who beat British wildcard Jay Clarke 6-3 6-3. You can't live on the glory from past year.

Audi CEO detained in diesel emissions case
Mark Clothier, a spokesman for Audi, confirmed the arrest and declined to comment further, because the investigation is ongoing. Audi CEO Rupert Stadler could not have been more prophetic when he said last month: "The diesel crisis is not yet over for us".


The 31-year-old Briton, who has been out of action with a hip injury since losing in the 2017 Wimbledon quarter-finals, has been drawn to meet Australia's Nick Kyrgios in the first round at Queen's.

"I didn't start playing to win Wimbledon or get to number one in the world". Rybarikova's versatility and shot-making fluidity enabled her to control the match nearly from start to finish.

Murray, a two-time Wimbledon victor, has admitted he doesn't have great expectations at the start of his comeback after so long on the sidelines.

"Everything is working well but I can not expect to much coming back from injury".

Roger Federer, who won in Stuttgart on Sunday, returned to Germany after a rapid visit to Switzerland.

"You can't live on the glory from a year ago, you have to show that again", Cilic said.
