Highlights

Day five: Boulter's title defence continues; Britain's men continue to dominate singles draw

Defending champion Katie Boulter is through to the quarter-finals at the Rothesay Open Nottingham on a day that has already seen four British singles wins – including Dan EvansCharles Broom and Jacob Fearnley.

Third seed Boulter beat Canadian Rebecca Marino 6-4, 6-3 in an hour and 16 minutes in a relatively straight forward match for the British No.1.

"A lot of it was about staying sharp, going with the flow and serving well - it was a battle," Boulter said. 

“I have some childhood memories here so I always get that warm fuzzy feeling every time I come out here. Being back where it all started reminds me how far I’ve come."

Facing a different type of challenge to her first round match against fellow Brit Harriet Dart, Boulter looked fully in control as she sped off to a set and 3-0 lead in no time at all.

Marino managed to salvage one of the two breaks of serve, but Boulter shrugged off the disappointment and lost just two points on serve the rest of the way.

In the quarters, she will play the winner of fifth seed Magdalena Frech up against Lexus Surbiton Trophy runner-up Tatjana Maria.

Last year's semi-finalist Heather Watson bowed out in the second round to former world No.1 and 2021 Wimbledon runner-up Karolina Pliskova 6-4, 6-4.

Watson bounced back from a set and a break down to lead 4-2 in the second before the Czech star reeled off four consecutive games to clinch a place in the quarter-finals.

Men's draw: British trio book quarter-final spots

2024-Dan-Evans-Rothesay-Open-Nottingham-R2.jpg

EvansBroom and Fearnley are through to the Rothesay Open Nottingham quarter-finals with four Brits now guaranteed for the final eight.

Evans had to be at his best to beat Wimbledon boys’ singles champion Henry Searle 7-6(4), 7-6(5) in a highly competitive match.

The two-time champion’s experience shone through in the biggest moments as the British No.3 edged two tie-break sets in two hours and two minutes.

Searle – who won three matches to get through qualifying and reach round two – looked more than ready to compete at this level with a serve that will cause almost every top player problems on the grass.

Evans did well to keep his composure and his range when Searle appeared to tighten up slightly when serving to consolidate his second set break and in both tie-breaks.

He will move on to play Broom, who progressed into the final eight with the biggest win of his career against Lexus Surbiton Trophy champion Lloyd Harris 7-6(2), 2-6, 6-4.

The 26-year-old qualifier saved two break points in the decider before winning the last 11 consecutive points to see out a well-earned win. He's one of two British qualifiers to make the quarters so far.

Fearnley is into his first ATP Challenger singles quarter-final after beating fellow Brit Paul Jubb 6-1, 6-7(12), 6-3 in two hours and three minutes.

The 22-year-old got off to a lightning start out on Nottingham’s Centre Court and looked full of confidence off the back of his first win at this level only the day before.

Fearnley put in a commanding performance in the opener, spraying winners off both wings to break Jubb twice and take a one set lead inside 26 minutes.

Fearnley admitted earlier in the week that Jubb had been a big inspiration for Brits like himself competing in the NCAA out in America and he certainly brought his A-game against the 24-year-old from Hull.

It would have been easy for Fearnley to let his game drop after missing out on seven match points in the second set tie-break, the Brit came back with the perfect response. He released a huge backhand winner on his first break point of the set before closing out the set on his 10th match point.

2024-Billy-Harris-Lexus-Surbiton-Trophy-QF.jpg

Lexus Surbiton Trophy semi-finalist Billy Harris has moved on into the second round of the men’s draw with a 6-3, 6-4 win over Coleman Wong.

With poor light yesterday forcing the duo to return on Wednesday and finish their match, the Briton picked up where he left off against the 20-year-old ATP Next Gen star with the decisive break on the first game of the second set.

Harris will play another rising star of the ATP Tour in 17-year-old Brazilian Joao Fonseca.
