Rothesay Open Nottingham 2023: Eikeri & Neel defeat Brits to win women’s doubles title


Ulrikke Eikeri and Ingrid Neel are the new Rothesay Open Nottingham women’s doubles champions with a match tie-break win over British stars Harriet Dart and Heather Watson.

Dart and Watson fought back from a set down to force the decider but eventually lost out to Eikeri and Neel 7-6(6), 5-7, 10-8 in two hours and 14 minutes on Court 1.

Watson finishes as runner-up in the women’s doubles for the second time in her career, having also made the final in 2018 with Mihaela Buzarnescu.

“It’s been an incredible week, I think we’ve done so well to get here,” said Eikeri. “Harriet and Heather are such great players and I’m sure they’ll get the title next time.

“It’s been a memorable week for sure winning my first title on grass – I’ll always remember it for sure.”

“The crowd has been lovely all week, I love playing in Nottingham,” Neel said. “Harriet and Heather, you guys are as tough as it gets and today was a real battle.

“We look forward to being back next year and hopefully many more to come.”


We didn’t get the title this time but I can promise you we will win the next one.

For Dart and Watson – this was their first WTA doubles final together and hopefully just the start of a brilliant partnership on the grass.

“I want to thank Harriet for playing with me this week,” Watson said. “We always have such fun on the court and she’s such a great teammate. We didn’t get the title this time but I can promise you we will win the next one.

“We’ve both been super unwell this week so making the final has been a real bonus. Congratulations to our opponents, they played a great match today and thank you to everyone who came out to support us.”
