A rainy Sunday in London kept Andy Murray and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the player's room at Queen's Club, waiting for their final in the Aegon Championship to begin. As the hours passed, Murray talked about cars with the support staff while Tsonga passed the time by playing Jenga.

Then things got serious. Ping pong serious, y'all.

In lieu of battling it out on the lawn, Murray and Tsonga competed in a tennis match on the table. Mano-amano. Paddle-apaddle. Cheesy warmup jacket-a-cheesy warmup jacket.

Tsonga prevailed 2-1 in the best-of-three match. Murray would get his revenge on Monday, when the real final was eventually played. The British No. 1 defeated the Frenchman 3-6, 7-6 (2), 6-4 to win the Wimbledon tuneup.

Though as far as I see it, the win on the grass courts of Queen's Club simply means Murray and Tsonga are tied 1-1 in their sporting triathlon. There appears to be a foosball table in that player's lounge. First one to 10 wins. No spinning.
