Lexus Ilkley Trophy 2024: David Goffin crowned champion in Ilkley

• 1 MINUTE READ

Former world No.7 David Goffin has won the Lexus Ilkley Trophy men’s singles title with a comfortable 6-4, 6-2 victory over Harold Mayot in Saturday’s final.

The 33-year-old wrapped up his 21st career singles trophy and first of the season in an hour and 18 minutes.

The win completes a brilliant week for the former Wimbledon quarter-finalist where he’s defeated 2023 Lexus Surbiton Trophy runner-up Jurij Rodionov, 2020 French Open juniors champion Dominic Stricker and seventh seed Zachary Svajda.

"It was a really good week," he said. "Five solid grass matches and the level was there. It gives me a lot of confidence for the Championships.

"It means a lot because I haven't won a trophy for some time and I managed to put it all together this week."

Despite losing his early 4-2 lead in the opening set, Goffin came back with an instant response and broke for a second time to go 5-4 in front before serving out for a one set advantage.

Momentum fully in the Belgian’s favour – Goffin lost just three points on serve in the second set and won the last four straight games to wrap up his first grass court title.

"It is special because I've felt like I had the level and I've come close a few times but now I finally have a trophy to show for it. It proves to me that I'm a grass court player."

In the men’s doubles final, USA’s Evan King and Reese Stalder won their eighth ATP Challenger Tour title together as they defeated Christian Harrison and Fabrice Martin 6-3, 3-6, 10-6.

The Americans were clinical in the deciding moments of the match, winning four straight points from 6-6 in the match tie-break to seal their first trophy in 2024.
