Brit of the Week
Following on from winning his maiden title in Nottingham, Jack Draper entered the ITF event in Roehampton. The young Brit was again unseeded and in the first round drew fellow Briton Tiran Sanghera. Draper found his fellow Brit a challenge in the first set, eventually breaking serve as it looked to be heading to a tiebreak. The young Brit had less trouble in the second as Draper dominated Sanghera and eased into the second round 7-5, 6-2.
In the second round Draper was up against Baptiste Crepatte the top seed. The Frenchman managed to break the serve of the young Brit and took the first set. Draper fought back in the second set and pulled the match level after breaking the serve of the top seed. The final set saw the top seed fight hard, however it was the Brit who got the vital break of serve. Draper moved into the quarter-final 4-6, 6-4, 6-4.
The quarter-final saw the young Brit against the seventh seed Finn Bass. In another battle of the Brits it was Draper that struck first. The seventh seed looked to fight back in the second set, however Bass was unable to do anything with the serve of Draper. Once again it was the young Brit who broke first and held on to book a spot in the semi-final 6-3, 6-4.
In the semi-final Draper was taking on yet another Brit. Mark Whitehouse who was also unseeded had progressed through to the last four. The young Brit completely dominated the first set barely give Whitehouse a chance to get settled. The second set was a little more competitive, however, Draper still eased through to his second final in succession in straight sets 6-1, 6-3.
The final saw Draper face Filip Bergevi. The Swede was looking for his first ITF title at the age of 24. The young Brit continued the form of previous rounds and soon broke serve. The second set was more like a stroll for Draper as he more or less broke at will and eased to his second title 6-3, 6-2.
