• World No. 13 Dimitrov saved one match point as he captured his first ATP World Tour grass-court title on Sunday.
• Since joining forces with coach Roger Rasheed in October 2013, the 23 year old has also won titles indoors in Stockholm (d. Ferrer), on outdoor hard court in Acapulco (d. Anderson) and on clay in Bucharest (d. Rosol).
• The 32-year-old Lopez was bidding to win his second grass-court crown, following victory at the Aegon International last year.
• Peya and Soares captured their ninth ATP World Tour team title on Sunday and first of the season as they edged home favourite Murray and partner Peers.
• The second seeds made up for the final disappointment they suffered at this ATP World Tour 250 grass-court tournament last year, when they were beaten in the final by Bob Bryan and Mike Bryan.


Dimitrov: "I'm really happy with the win. Obviously I knew what I had to do today out on the court, and [Lopez] is one of those competitors that when it comes to fast surfaces, he's always very tricky to play. I just fought hard and left everything out on the court - that was my main goal. I achieved what I was looking for."

Lopez: "It's tough to lose when you play such a great match. Overall it was a great week for me. It has been a great preparation for Wimbledon, and hopefully in Eastbourne, next week, I can do well again. It’s true that I'm feeling great."

Peya: "It was a very tough match. They didn't give us many chances on their serve. We managed to hang in there. At the end, we played some great points in both tie-breakers. It was good to take the lead early on and manage to keep that all the way."

Murray: "We played a good match. We didn't lose serve. We just obviously didn't quite get it done at the end. Overall it was a great week for us. I don't think we could have done much more today. It's just the way it goes."
