LONDON (AP) -- Andy Murray has won his first title of the season, beating Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4 at Queen's Club.

Monday's final was played a day late because of rain.

Murray also won this title in 2009. He is the first Briton to win the Wimbledon warmup at least twice since Francis Gordon Lowe won in 1913, '14 and '25.

Murray earned the only break in the third set, taking a 3-2 lead on his 10th break point when Tsonga sent a forehand wide.

Tsonga broke to lead 4-2 in the first set and later saved two break points as he served out the set. Both players had chances in the second set before Murray won the final five points of the tiebreaker.
