Andy Murray showed typical resilience to take a 2-1 victory over Marin Cilic in the Queens final

Andy Murray powered back from a set down to clinch the championship at Queen's with a convincing win over Croatian Marin Cilic on Sunday 16 June.

In a typical show of resilience, the British number one clawed his way back into contention after losing the first set 7-5 for his third victory at the tournament.

Murray had squandered two break points to let the Croation recover from a shaky start to take first blood in the opening set after the match was delayed due to rain.

The Scottish star had made a promising start, taking an early break, but allowed Cilic back into the match as the set wore on.

Murray took a nasty fall at the beginning of the second set but pulled himself back into contention with a demonstration of power that kept the pressure squarely on the Croatian.

Murray hung on to prevail 7-5 in the second set, taking set point with a backhand passing shot that left the 24-year-old Croatian flailing at the net.

The Scottish star then broke Clinic midway early in the final set, to go 3-1 ahead, going on to hold his own serve without losing a point in the following game to take a commanding 4-1 lead.

In the following game Murray narrowly missed out on two break points that would have all but assured him of the title, but he powered through his final service game to go 5-2 up with an ace.

Cilic managed to hold on to his serve, bringing him to 5-3 in the deciding set. But serving for the match, Murray proved too powerful, taking the final set 6-3.

"We were concerned about him in the second set, but this whole week he has looked the man to beat," said former British number one Andrew Castle.
