Robertson’s run, Fearnley makes Wimbledon waves, TS Open Tour latest and full list of Lexus Scottish Junior Open winners


Charlie Robertson carved through the draw to reach the final of the Lexus British Open – 20 years after Sir Andy Murray did likewise.

The 17-year-old was in sensational form at the junior event in Roehampton and arrived in the semi-finals without dropping a set. Seventh seed Maxim Mrva was his opponent in the final four, but Robertson showed his mettle by shrugging off a 1-6 second-set deficit to win the decider by the same scoreline.

As the rain fell, the final was moved off the grass to the indoor hard courts at the National Tennis Centre, where the Scot came up just short in a tight encounter with the Spanish player Rafael Jodar.

It was a great week overall for Robertson, who now competes in singles and doubles in the Boys’ event at Wimbledon.

In the wheelchair Lexus British Open, also at Roehampton, Gordon Reid reached the semi-finals of singles, where he was defeated 4-6, 4-6 by Gustavo Fernandez.

Fearnley makes Wimbledon waves

Jacob Fearnley introduced himself to the global tennis public in some style at Wimbledon as he earned the opportunity to play 24-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic on Centre Court.

Fearnley, 22, took on the Serbian in the second round and pushed the tennis legend all the way, coming so close to forcing the match into a fifth set.

Despite being edged out 3-6, 4-6, 7-5, 5-7, it was a terrific week for the young Scot, who won the Rothesay Open event on the ATP Challenger Tour in Nottingham recently having just completed his four years at Texas Christian University.

Elsewhere at Wimbledon, all eyes were on Sir Andy Murray as he brought the curtain down on his extraordinary Grand Slam career. You can read all about the emotional scenes on Centre Court here.

Sir Andy is expected to retire after taking part in the Paris Olympics later this month, where he’s due to play doubles for Great Britain alongside Dan Evans.

Cam Norrie, meanwhile, reached the third round with a win over British number one Jack Draper before exiting at the hands of Alexander Zverev following an epic 17-15 reverse in the third-set tie-break.

Going into week two, Scottish interest remains alive with Jamie Murray and Maia Lumsden both competing in mixed doubles, Gordon Reid in the wheelchair singles and doubles and Charlie Robertson and Hephzibah Oluwadare in junior singles and doubles.

McHugh reaches semis in Canada

On the pro tour, Aidan McHugh enjoyed a strong week, reaching the semi-finals of both singles and doubles at the M25 Laval.

The Scot won through three rounds of the ITF World Tennis Tour singles event in Canada before bowing out to Karl Poling. In doubles, McHugh and Ben Jones were beaten in the last four by home duo Liam Draxl and Cleeve Harper.

Knowles & Fryer win on TS Open Tour

The TS Open Tour leaderboard calendar hit the clay as the Kerr Stirling Bridge of Allan Open took place.

Aimee Knowles was the champion in the women’s singles event – barely dropping games let alone sets. Wasting no time, the top seed raced into the final, where she beat Aadya Iyer Chadalawada 6-2, 6-1.

On the men’s side, Cameron Fryer added another title to a fine season on the TS Open Tour as he beat Nicolas Rosenzweig in an epic three-hour final. The top two seeds split tie-breaks, before Fryer clinched the title 10-6 in the deciding breaker.
