Back to News
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.
Marcus Willis, who incredibly made it to the second round of the main draw of Wimbledon last year year having won two qualifying events, was playing in Liverpool for the first time. Marcus is hoping to get a wildcard into the main draw of Wimbledon 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 giving Willis a great boost of confidence as the summer grass seasons really kicks off in London next week.
