Grigor Dimitrov and Feliciano Lopez

Dimitrov beats Lopez, wins Queen’s title

Ousted by Ivo Karlovic in the first round at Roland Garros, Grigor Dimitrov bounced back from this disappointing defeat to capture Queen’s title. He beat Lopez 6-7 (8-10) 7-6 (7-1) 7-6 (8-6) in a thrilling final.
After his victories in Acapulco (hard) and Bucharest (clay), it is Dimitrov third title of the year on a third different surface.
