Andy Murray was crowned king of Queen's Club for the third time as the World No 2 roared back to defeat defending champion Marin Cilic 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 in yesterday's final

Murray was pushed hard by the Croatian fifth seed, but the US Open champion responded to the challenge with the kind of classy display that bodes well with Wimbledon just eight days away.

He picked up a cheque for £73,315 (86,300 euros) for his latest triumph at the pre-Wimbledon warm-up event, but more importantly his dominant week’s work served as the perfect preparation ahead of his latest bid to end Britain’s long wait for a male winner of the singles’ title at the All England Club. —
