Marcus WIllis won a Futures in Spain last week, saving a championship point in the final set tie-break. Here's some highlights of the second and third set:

Oh, and Dan Evans won a Futures this week. His first title since his knee injury and will lift him back to around WR610 (currently in the high 700s).

A big shout out to Luke Bambridge - he'd had a bit of a torrid time of last, having fallen back from a CH in the low 500s to the low 700s - but has shown signs of improvement lately (a number of tight losses to much higher ranked players), and today took out the world #108 and 2nd seed Farrukh Dustov in the Samarkand challenger, having come through qualifying.

He joins Liam Broady and Brydan Klein in the second round, who are 6th and 8th seeds respectively.

Very impressive win for Brydan Klein in Queens qualifying.

Having been the sole Brit to make the semi-finals of the Surbiton challenger last week, he (as the sole Brit in Queens' qualifying) drew Nadal's conqueror of two years ago Steve Darcis (currently residing at WR76 - actually higher than when he beat Nadal in 2013). And Klein saved a whole clutch of match points (coming from 0-40 down in the final game of the decider and then another couple in the tie-break) before coming through 9-7 in the final set tie-break.

His recent form (making the QFs of the Manchester challenger prior to Surbiton) will see him on the brink and quite possibly taking a career high set when he was a teenager.

He will face Paul-Henri Mathieu in the FQR.

Smethurst ended Evo's 13 match winning run before winning the title in Dublin this week. Broke the top 250 a year ago but injury problems saw him fall back out the top 400. Working his way back up.

Evans on the other hand is soaring back up the rankings.

Smethurst beat Lloyd Glasspool in the final - a recent college grad who was previous unranked. He will join the rankings immediately in the 900s.

Bedene had what must of been one of the best wins of his career in Hamburg today when he beat Bautista Agut in straight sets.

Wow hadn't seen that - brilliant win. Bautista took out Coric the other day too (who beat Aljaz just last week). He's flying at the moment - top 40 in the race now.

Aljaz did actually beat Bautista back in Jan, although that was on hard and I don't know where Bautista was ranked at the time.
