British players complete a clean sweep at M25 and W25 Nottingham tournaments
• 3 MINUTE READ
British players completed a clean sweep of titles in the final week of ITF World Tennis Tour events at the Nottingham Tennis Centre.
Three back-to-back weeks of international tennis have come to an end after tennis players from across the globe competed at the events.
Top seed Harriet Dart headlined the action and claimed the women’s singles title without dropping a set all week, including beating the singles champion from week one and two, Arina Rodionova in the semi-final. George Loffhagen claimed his second career title at this level with a 7-6(5), 6-2 victory over France’s Jules Marie.
Maia Lumsden and Naiktha Bains won their third title in three weeks, having lifted the trophy in the first week of competition in Nottingham, the title at an ITF W40 tournament in France last week, before heading back to Nottingham this week. The pair came through a tight final against China’s Jia-Jing Lu and Elena Malygina of Estonia 4-6, 6-4, (10-6).
Marcus Willis also backed up a week one doubles win, this time partnering with countryman Scott Duncan to defeat Giles Hussey and Ben Jones 6-3, 6-2 in an all-British final.
Tournament Director Richard Joyner reflected: “There was some great tennis throughout the week, and to have a player of Harriet’s calibre was fantastic for the tournament, whilst George capturing his second career M25 title was reflective of the high quality of tennis he displayed throughout the week. It was great to stage three weeks in a row on the Tennis Centre's newly resurfaced outdoor courts.”
