Murray claims first title of season

12:24 pm on 14 June 2011

A week out from Wimbledon, Andy Murray has won his first title of the year, winning the Queen's Club grasscourt title in three sets against the Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

The second seeded Scot withstood an athletic onslaught from Tsonga to win the match 3-6 7-6 6-4 and wind up the Wimbledon warmup event a day late, after rain washed out play on Sunday.

Murray says it's been great preparation for Wimbledon, and he'll be working hard for the rest of the week fine-tuning himself for the year's third major championship.
