Good afternoon everyone! I'm @magentachange and its great to be here with you for the first of the Queens Club semi finals! Can we help Andy get over the line and into another home final? Let's hope so!

To say it looks overcast at Queens would be an understatement but I'm hoping the defending champion will bring some radiance to proceedings. I'd rather like a nice straight sets win.... but not sure if anyone has given Andy that particular script. Ever.

Our semi-finalists are out on court, about to warm up. I would tell you who's in the chair this afternoon but I can never remember his name. Not that it matters now. Here comes the main man. Ivan the Inscrutable has taken his seat.

Quick shot of Kim, who Andrew Castle seems to think will find watching Andy restful. Really? Has he ever watched a Murray match? Restful is not in the list of adjectives I have ever used to describe a Murray match!

WOW! Just hearing that Roger has been beaten in Halle! Nice work Alexander Zverev, that's a fantastic win given The Fed's record there. 6-7 7-5 3-6

Meanwhile, back in London. Cilic serving first.

Nice rally, Andy's legs are working well and earn him the first point of the match!

Marin straightens the scoreline with a nice couple of serves for 30-15.

A solid opening game from Marin with a hold to 15. Nothing to get too excited about - apart from Goran's first appearance of the week!

Some nice tennis in the opening point of the Murray service game but Marin gets a bit over excited with a cross court FH and it's quickly 15-0. And 30-0. And an ace for 40-0.
