Andy Murray claimed his first title of the season by beating fifth-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga of France 3-6 7-6 (2), 6-4 on Monday in the final at Queen's Club.
The match was played a day late because rain postponed play on Sunday.
Murray earned the only break in the third set, taking a 3-2 lead on his 10th break point of the match when Tsonga sent a forehand wide.
Murray, who also won the title in 2009, is the first Briton to win the Wimbledon warmup at least twice since Francis Gordon Lowe won in 1913-14 and '25.
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.
