LONDON (AP) -- Top-seeded Andy Murray and defending champion Marin Cilic will play in the final at Queen's Club after both earned three-set victories on Saturday.

Murray, the champion in 2009 and 2011, rallied to defeat fourth-seeded Frenchman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 in a repeat of their 2011 final. Fifth-seeded Cilic of Croatia held off former four-time winner Lleyton Hewitt 6-4, 4-6, 6-2.

Murray will play for his 27th career title and first since he won in Miami in March.

Cilic had lost his only previous meeting with Hewitt, at the London Olympics. He will bid for his 10th career title. His last tournament victory came in February at home in Zagreb.
