Josh Goodall has defeated Dan Evans to win the AEGON GB Pro-Series title in Frinton whilst Johanna Konta has beaten Laura Robson at the AEGON GB Pro-Series Foxhills after the Briton was forced to retire hurt.
At the ITF $10k in Frinton, Essex, 25 year-old Goodall beat compatriot and top seed Evans 6-3, 6-2 to add to victory at last week's tournament in Ilkley.
Victory in the singles for Goodall adds to his runners-up finish in the doubles final with Chris Eaton. The pair reached the final of an AEGON GB Pro-Series event for the second consecutive week, before being beaten 7-5, 7-6(2) by the French pair Fabrice Martin and Julien Maes.
The British duo have either won or finished runners-up in their last three AEGON GB Pro-Series events in Manchester, Ilkley and Frinton.
Meanwhile there was also British involvement in the final at the ITF $25k women's singles and doubles in Foxhills, Woking.
On a day disrupted by rain the doubles final was moved to the indoors courts in nearby Weybridge featuring Briton Mel South, who partnered Emma Laine against Julie Coin and Eva Hrdinova.
The match went the distance after Coin and Hrdinova let a 6-1, 3-1 lead slip, as South and Laine reeled off five games in a row to level the match at a set all. In the ensuing match tie break, the French/Czech partnership led 8-5, and despite being pegged back once more to 8-8, the pair won the last two points to emerge as champions 6-1, 3-6, [10-8].
With a break in the rain the Women's Singles Final got on court outdoors in warm sunshine, with a very close first set going the way of the unseeded Konta 6-4.
After a medical time out at the end of the first set which saw Robson needing to leave court, the Briton was forced to retire two games into the second set to hand the Australian a 6-4 1-1 victory.
This latest success for the 20 year old is her third title at $25k level or above, and with her ranking currently at 353, will push her close to the career high ranking of 248 she achived in April of this year.
