Andy Murray beat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in a thrilling contest, to win his second title at the Aegon Championships at Queen's Club in London.

The British number one won in three sets having lost the first set to his French opponent.

The match was delayed and took place on Monday after constant rain meant that no play was possible on Sunday.

Andy's in top form right now, having thrashed world number 5 Andy Roddick in the semi-final, in less than an hour.

The final was worth the wait as both players put on a great show for the sell-out crowd.

Tsonga played with real commitment and power, diving all over the court to make winning shots - and it paid off as he took the first set 3-6.

The second set went to a tie-break and Andy came out on top, winning it 7-2 to make it one set-all.

Then, in the final set, the super Scot came out firing with some of his best shots - and it was too much for Tsonga, the final score 3-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-4.

After taking the trophy, Andy said: "Tsonga was playing a different sport to me in the first two sets. He's so much fun to watch. He was using variation on his serve, and a lot of aggression.

"But I managed to break him eventually. My ankle has got much better. This has been one of the most fun weeks I've had on the tour. I've loved it."

The tournament at Queen's, played on grass, is often seen as a great way of preparing for Wimbledon.
