Aegon Open Nottingham Hospitality Packages – Istomin crowned champion

Uzbekistan’s Denis Istomin has clinched his first ATP World Tour title at the Aegon Open Nottingham, after defeating American Sam Querrey 7-6(1) 7-6(6) in Saturday’s final in front of a sell-out crowd including Eventmasters Aegon Open Nottingham hospitality packages guests.

The big-serving American, saved two match points and almost levelled the tie having raced ahead 5-1 in the second-set tiebreak. But Istomin, who also became the first Uzbekistani to lift an ATP World Tour title, recovered his composure to land the title. After the match Istomin commented “I was a little bit nervous and he took his chance to break for 5-5. During the tiebreak, I just forgot about the score and I just tried to fight. In the end it worked, and I’m happy to have my first title.”

12th seed and World No. 44 Querrey, who toppled second seed and World No. 13 Gilles Simon in the semi-finals, said his comeback in the final was outdone by some magical moments from his opponent. “It was kind of an emotional rollercoaster toward the end, he came up with some good shots.”

After claiming his first title Istomin can head into Wimbledon full of confidence, he takes on Spaniard Albert Ramos-Vinolas in the opening round. Earlier in the day, the pairing of Chris Guccione and Andre Sa also lifted their first ATP crown after defeating second seeds Pablo Cuevas and David Marrero 6-2 7-5 in the doubles final on Centre Court.

Kyle Edmund and Aljaz Bedene confirmed for Aegon Open Nottingham

British number two and Aljaz Bedene and youngster Kyle Edmund have followed Davis Cup star James Ward in being awarded a wild card into the Aegon Open Nottingham (ATP) field. The pair will entertain the crowd enjoying the tennis hospitality facilities at the Aegon Open Nottingham.

Edmund has already qualified for both Grand Slam events this season and won his first main draw match at Roland Garros with a dramatic five-set win over Stephane Robert. Bedene has won two Challenger titles this year and is embarking on his first grass court season as a British citizen in front of a home crowd.

The British trio will compete alongside French star Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and Spaniard Feliciano Lopez at the Nottingham Tennis Centre the week before The Championships, Wimbledon.

Bedene said: “I am really pleased to receive the wild card to the Aegon Open Nottingham and look forward to playing on the great grass courts at the tennis centre.”

The Aegon Open Nottingham will form part of a new British grass court season that will run for three weeks between the French Open and Wimbledon. The WTA event takes place from 6-14 June 2015, and the men’s ATP event is staged from 20-27 June 2015. The extended grass court season will enable some of the world’s elite players extra time to find their feet on grass and make the most of the very best grass-courts in the country.

Aegon Open Nottingham (ATP) Tournament Director Paul Hutchins, said: “Having a good contingent of GB players is good for the event so I am pleased that currently three out of our four wild cards are going to well-known British players as local Nottingham spectators will like to see a mix of great international players such as Jo-Wilfred Tsonga and Feliciano Lopez as well as the home guys.”
