DAVID Nalbandian set up a AEGON Championships final with Marin Cilic after a straight-sets win over rising star Grigor Dimitrov.
Both players dropped their opening service games, but it was the world No.39 who edged the first 6-4.
And the Argentinian made his experience show in the second as he held his nerve to take it 6-4 and book a place in the final.
He will face Croat Cilic, who saw off 2010 champion Sam Querrey in three sets.
The sixth seed raced through to take the first 6-3, but the American hit back to level after breaking early in the second.
However, Cilic took control of the deciding set to win it 6-3 and secure his first Queen's final.
