How far do you think Andy Murray will get at Wimbledon?

Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga will go head-to-head at Queen’s Club today after the final was washed out for only the third time in the tournament’s history.

The pre-Wimbledon event is carrying over into a second Monday for the first time since Boris Becker beat Jimmy Connors in 1987.

Tournament director Chris Kermode said: “After a frustrating day on Sunday it has been very rewarding and encouraging to see the huge reaction to tickets going on sale for the Monday final.

“To sell out within an hour is a measure of the popularity of the tournament and the players that ticket-holders will get to see. Andy Murray is one of the very best tennis players in the world, while Jo-Wilfried Tsonga oozes charisma.”

There was no play whatsoever on Sunday, despite the scheduled start time being brought forward.

Murray is looking to regain the title he won two years ago and complete the perfect Wimbledon preparation when the final does get under way.

Tsonga, ranked 19th in the world, ended hopes of an unexpected all-British final with victory over James Ward on Saturday - but is likely to find Murray a far stiffer test.

The world number four was in scintillating form as he destroyed four-time champion Andy Roddick in the first of the semi-finals, and the Scot has won four of his five matches against Tsonga, among them a quarter-final victory at Wimbledon last year.
