WIND & SIMON

FOR EASTBOURNE TITLE

.

Gusting winds and the guile of Gilles Simoncould not get in the way of Feliciano Lopez winning his first ATP World Tour grass-court title on Saturday in Eastbourne. The Spaniard finished strongly to defeat Simon 7-6(2), 6-7(5), 6-0 in the final of the Aegon International.

The pair will meet again on Tuesday in the first round of The Championships atWimbledon, where Lopez is a three-time former quarter-finalist.

“I think grass is my best surface, and to have at least one title on grass is very nice feeling,” said Loppez. “This match was really special, because it’s great to be in the finals and it’s an opportunity to win another ATP event. But playing the same guy in two days, it’s also important to have some feedback, even though we know each other very well, because almost every week we see each other.”

TOPSHELF OPEN

FOR FIRST TITLE

Den Bosch, Netherlands (Sports Network) – Frenchman Nicolas Mahut captured his first career ATP title with a victory over Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland in Saturday’s final at the Topshelf Open.

Mahut defeated Wawrinka, the No. 2 seed, by a 6-3, 6-4 margin at Autotron Rosmalen.

The 31-year-old journeyman Mahut appeared in the third title match of his career. He was a two-time runner-up back in 2007.

Mahut became the lowest-ranked winner on the ATP World Tour since March 2008 when No. 244 Kei Nishikori won the Delray Beach title.

“It’s amazing. I cannot believe I won today,” Mahut said. “I didn’t know if I was going to play again when I had some bad times with my knee. All my team helped me a lot. We worked hard and here I am with the trophy. It’s a good story.”
