Andy Murray will be looking to give himself a confidence boost ahead of Wimbledon by beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the Queen’s Club final on Monday.
The AEGON Championships final should have taken place on Sunday, but the heavy rain postponed the showdown until Monday.
No. 5 seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga attempts to become the first French champion in the history of the Queen’s Club (since 1890) as he takes on No. 2 seed and 2009 winner Andy Murray in Sunday’s AEGON Championships final.
Both players, who have dropped one set en route to the title match, are appearing in their second final of the season. Tsonga was runner-up in Rotterdam in February and Murray was a finalist at the Australian Open in January. Tsonga is trying to become the first player to defeat the No. 1 & 2 seeds en route to the title since Tim Mayotte in 1986. The Frenchman defeated No. 1 Rafael Nadal in the quarter-finals Friday.
Murray has won four of the previous five ATP World Tour level meetings, including a quarter-final at Wimbledon last year. They played once in a Challenger in Nottingham in 2004 and Tsonga won 76 62 en route to the title. Murray, who won the title two years ago (d. Blake), is trying to become the first British player to win the Queen’s Club title at least twice since Francis Gordon Lowe won the title three times (1913-14, ’25). He was 3-2 in finals.
Murray is trying to become the eighth player to win at least two Queen’s Club titles in the Open Era. This is Tsonga’s first ATP World Tour final on grass. He’s won two British Challenger grass titles (’04 Nottingham, ’07 Surbiton).
