London:

Andy Murray will face defending champion Marin Cilic in his third Queen's Club final as the world number two fought back to defeat Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 on Saturday.

Murray was forced to wait several hours before finally getting on court due to heavy rain in west London, but he recovered from a slow start to inflict another defeat on French fourth seed Tsonga at the pre-Wimbledon warm-up event.

The US Open champion had won seven of his previous eight meetings with Tsonga, including the 2011 Queen's final and the 2012 Wimbledon semi-finals, and he maintained his dominance over his close friend to secure a Sunday showdown with Cilic, who beat Australian veteran Lleyton Hewitt 6-4, 4-6, 6-2 in the other semi-final.

It will be Murray's 41st ATP Tour final, but his first since he defeated David Ferrer to win the Miami Masters in March.
