DIMITROV WINS 2014 AEGON CHAMPIONSHIPS
Grigor Dimitrov beat Feliciano Lopez 6-7(8), 7-6(1), 7-6(6) to win the Aegon Championships singles title.
The Bulgarian saved match point when serving to stay in the second set and recovered from a break down in the third to win his fourth career title.
Dimitrov, who played his first Aegon Championships in 2009 thanks to a wild card from the then tournament director Chris Kermode, showed his tenacity as he fought to create a break back point at 4-3 in the third set. A double fault from Lopez put the match back on serve and, inevitably, it needed a tiebreak in the third to separate the two.
The tiebreak remained on serve until 5-5, when Lopez netted a backhand slice approach. But at 6-5, with match point, Dimitrov framed a forehand to allow Lopez a reprieve. But the determined Bulgarian converted his second championship point to become the only player this year to have won titles on three different surfaces.
