Straight Sets Victories Crown New Lexus Ilkley Trophy Champions

Jason Kubler and Mirjam Bjorklund were crowned the new Lexus Ilkley Trophy singles champions having both come through straight sets victories on finals day.

Fourth seed Kubler defeated world No.81 Sebastian Ofner 6-4, 6-4 in the final to win his 21st career title and a first on grass. Kubler didn’t face a single break point through the match, losing just 10 points on serve in both sets combined. He needed just one break in both sets to seal his maiden grass court title in an hour and 20 minutes.

In the women’s singles, unseeded Bjorklund completed her dream week in Ilkley by defeating top seed Emma Navarro 6-4, 7-5 in the final. This is the first time the Swedish star has won a title at W100 level and like Kubler, is her first trophy on grass.

Bjorklund had a brilliant week in Ilkley, not only beating the top seed but knocking out the reigning champion, Dalma Galfi in the semi-finals.

Top seeds Gonzalo Escobar and Aleksandr Nedovyesov are the new men’s doubles champions in Ilkley with a nail-biting 2-6, 7-5, 11-9 victory over Robert Galloway and John Patrick Smith in the final.

Meanwhile, Nao Hibino and Natalija Stevanovic had to come through two matches on Friday to win the women’s doubles trophy. The Japenese, Serbian duo finished with another close win over Maja Chwalinska and Jesika Maleckova 7-6(10), 7-6(5) in the final.
Having increased the seating capacity on Centre Court from 750 to 1100 for 2023, and still selling out the last three days, the goal to further increase to 1500-1600 seats in 2024 has already been discussed.
Working on the basis that if you stand still, you go backwards, the tournament will continue to make changes for the future.
