Top seed Andy Murray admits he is delighted at his progress in the AEGON Championships at Queen's Club.

Murray beat fourth seed Jo-Wifried Tsonga 4-6 6-3 6-2 to set up a meeting with defending champion Marin Cilic in the final on Sunday.

The Scot, who has also beaten Nicolas Mahut this week, was desperate to progress at Queen's after injury ruled him out of the French Open and to make up for the disappointment of crashing out at the first hurdle last year.

Murray is much more relaxed after getting valuable game time this week as he steps up his preparations for another crack at Wimbledon.

"You don't always come into this tournament with high expectations because you haven't had that long to prepare and it's always a tough draw here."

"I'm much happier," he said. "You don't always come into this tournament with high expectations because you haven't had that long to prepare and it's always a tough draw here.

"I lost in the first round last year and had my best run at Wimbledon, but I think really because I missed the French Open it's really, really important for me to get matches in this week.

"If I had lost my first match to Mahut and going into Wimbledon and having played one match in six or seven weeks, you know, that's tough if you want to win the event.

"So it was really important for me to get some matches."
