"I have to keep my expectations very low, considering my results in the last 12 months".
Cameras panned to the young Aussie in his players box moments before his semi-finals match against Croatia's Marin Cilic, and found him in a playful mood, joking around with an unseen person in the crowd and holding a water bottle in the vicinity of his crotch.
Having saved six break points, Djokovic struck with the first chance of his own to clinch a draining 67-minute first set, before a reversal of fortunes in the second.
"It's a tough loss for me".
Cilic said, 'Just before the tournament in Wimbledon, I went to see the specialist for a pedicure at Wimbledon, and the lady helped me a lot.

"I played a lot of three-setters and a lot of tennis".
"It's special to play here and I've played great tennis throughout the week and it's great to have another shot at the title", the 2012 Queen's champion said.
Unfortunately for Kyrgios, he was knocked out of the Wimbledon warm-up event by Cilic, going down 7-6 7-6.
Djokovic was seeking to win his first title for a year as he battles his way back to his best form after injury.
Slowly, reminiscent of the Djokovic of old, the Serb began to tug the match back towards him, although his forehand lacked the penetration of his opponent.

An arrest report says Dedrick Williams was arrested Wednesday after an officer spotted him driving a silver 2004 Honda. At the time of his death, he was awaiting trial after being accused of kidnapping and assaulting his pregnant partner.
While Kyrgios will be frustrated, his level during the week augurs well for his Wimbledon prospects.
Cilic, who won the title in 2012 and was runner-up a year ago, was competing in his fourth Queen's final. "If he serves well and he's physically feeling good, for sure", said the Australian, who could not cope with Cilic's precision.
And then, with Cilic serving to send it to a tiebreak, Djokovic raised his returning game and broke, with the Croatian dumping a forehand into the net. But after dropping a tight opening set, Kvitova turned on the style to record a 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 victory in just over two hours.
He duly served it out to claim his second title at Queen's and confirmed himself as Federer's biggest threat at Wimbledon.
