LONDON: Briton Andy Murray withstood an athletic onslaught from Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to beat the Frenchman 3-6 7-6 6-4 and win the final of the Queen’s Club championships on Monday.

The climax of the Wimbledon warm-up event was being held a day late after rain washed out play on Sunday and while conditions stayed dry, Murray weathered the storm of Tsonga’s fast groundstrokes, diving volleys and energetic charges.

Tsonga’s high-risk strategy of attack had looked like paying off before an unlucky net cord in the 11th game of the second set prevented him from breaking to serve for the match.

Instead, world number four Murray held and later took the momentum into the tiebreak which he won with ease 7-2. The determined Scot dominated the final set and wrapped up the title with a smash. (Reuters)
