Murray into Queen's final

6:11 am on 12 June 2011

Britain's Andy Murray will face Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the final at the Queen's Club tennis tournament after an imperious 6-3 6-1 victory over four-time champion Andy Roddick in the semi-finals.

Murray, seeded second, was in sublime form as he demolished one of the top grass-court players of the last decade and French fifth seed Tsonga joined him in the final with a 6-3 7-6 win against British wildcard James Ward.

This was arguably the most complete performance of Murray's career and the victory was especially sweet for the world number 4 as it went some way to avenging his 2009 Wimbledon semi-final defeat against Roddick.

The American was going for a record fifth Queen's title.
