Day seven: Thompson and Van Uytvanck crowned champion

Jordan Thompson and Alison Van Uytvanck etched their names in the Surbiton Trophy history books – finishing a fantastic week of tennis as the men’s and women’s singles champions.

Thompson overcame world No.81 Denis Kudla 7-5, 6-3 to lift his eighth ATP Challenger title and first career trophy on grass.

The Australian star held Kudla to just 50% points won on first serve throughout the match, breaking his opponent three times in the opening set. Kudla had the chance to serve for the set at 5-4 but Thompson made him pay for missing his chance by taking three games on the spin.

Kudla tried to replicate his semi-final comeback against Andy Murray and even had two break point opportunities early in the second, but Thompson was equal to the challenge. After breaking for 4-2 he held his own to see out his first title since 2018.

Van Uytvanck is the new W100 champion after defeating Arina Rodionova 7-6(2), 6-2 on finals day at the Surbiton Racket & Fitness Club.

The second seed – who defeated Britain’s Jodie Burrage in the semi-finals – lifted her 20th career singles title in an hour and 39 minutes.

After the rain put a delay on the start of the match, Van Utyvanck found herself having to battle from 3-0 and then 4-2 down to force a tie-break. With momentum shifting in favour of the Belgian she got the all-important mini-break thanks to an error from Rodionova before serving out for the set.

Van Uytvanck was able to dictate the early exchanges in the second set and made full use of an effective forehand slice return to edge 3-1 in front. There seemed little way back for the Australian from there as the world No.60 continued to go through the gears and see out a hard-earned victory.

“I wasn’t sure whether to come after Roland Garros but I’m so happy I came,” said Van Uytvanck. “I love to play on grass, I think it’s a really nice centre court. It was close and I needed to bring my best tennis out there today.”
