Willis in Liverpool International final
Photos from Northern Vision via
STEVE Darcis (BEL) won the 16th
Liverpool Hope International Tennis Tournament beating Marcus Willis (GBR) 7-5
6-3 in glorious conditions at Liverpool Cricket Club.
Willis, who incredibly made it to the the 2nd round of Wimbledon last year
having won 2 qualifying events, was playing in Liverpool for the 1st time.
Willis is hoping to get a wildcard into the Wimbledon main draw this year and
his match against Darcis (ranked 330 places higher in the ATP rankings) has been
fantastic preparation for the British hopeful. The final was evenly matched,
despite the ranking difference, and thoroughly enjoyed by the Liverpool crowd
giving Willis a huge boost of confidence as the summer grass season really kicks
off in London next week.
The Women's Singles final was won by Polona Hercog (SLO) who beat Corrina
Dentoni (ITA) 6-2 6-4.
