Spaniards Bautista Agut, Lopez Collect ATP Grass Titles

No. 3-seeded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut captured his first career title at the Topshelf Open in Holland Saturday, in the final beating unseeded German Benjamin Becker 2-6, 7-6(2), 6-4.

“I was trying to not think too much and play my game point by point,” the Spaniard said. “It was the same nervousness as every match. I played calm and aggressive in the last game. I had to celebrate hard (after match point) and enjoy the moment.”

The 26-year-old will be close to a Top 20 ranking entering Wimbledon on Monday. Becker fell to 1-2 in career finals.

At the Aegon International in Eastbourne, Great Britain, No. 3-seeded Spaniard Feliciano Lopez successfully defended his title by upending top-seeded Richard Gasquet 6-3, 6-7(5), 7-5.

“The way I play here is completely different from when I play on the other surfaces around the world,” the left Lopez said. “My attitude was great. I was fighting. Even though I lost the second set, I was [fighting] all the time.”

The 32-year-old, who lost to Grigor Dimitrov in the Queen’s Club final last week, improved to 4-7 in career finals. Gasquet fell to 10-12 in career finals, 0-2 thus far in 2014 after going 3-0 in 2013.
