Andy Murray downs Marin Cilic for third Queen's Club crown

June 16, 2013 at 2:11 PM

LONDON, June 16 (UPI) -- Top-seeded Andy Murray earned his third career victory at the Queen's Club Sunday with a defeat of Marin Cilic in the Aegon Championships final.

Murray waited out a 3-hour rain delay before prevailing over the fifth-seeded defending champion 5-7, 7-5, 6-3 en route to his fourth overall grass court crown.

Murray showed few signs of rust in his win over Croatia's Cilic, which came after the Scotsman had skipped the French Open with a lower back injury. It marked his third victory of 2013.

His previous London titles came in 2009 and 2011.

Cilic, meanwhile, fell to 1-9 against Murray. He won last year's event in a default when finals opponent David Nalbandian angrily smashed an advertising sign with his racket.

The sign flew into a linesman, causing a gash on his leg.
