BAUTISTA AGUT CAPTURES MAIDEN CROWN IN DEN BOSCH; ROJER/TECAU TAKE FOURTH TEAM TITLE
• Bautista Agut captured his first title after overcoming 13 aces and a 32-minute first set in favour of his German counterpart.
• The Spaniard becomes the second first-time champion this year after Federico Delbonis won in Sao Paulo (d. Lorenzi).
• The 26 year old is now on the precipice of the Top 20 in the Emirates ATP Rankings at a career-high No. 23.
• Becker was seeking his second tour-level crown in his third final. He previously claimed victory in ‘s-Hertogenbosch in 2009, defeating Raemon Sluiter in straight sets.
• Rojer and Tecau claimed their fourth team title and fourth trophy of the season in 75 minutes (also Zagreb, Casablanca and Bucharest).
• Gonzalez and Lipsky fall to a 7-1 FedEx ATP Win/Loss record in finals.

WHAT THE PLAYERS SAID

Bautista Agut: "I was trying to not think too much and play my game point by point. It was the same nervousness as every match. I played calm and agressive in the last game. I had to celebrate hard (after match point) and enjoy the moment."

Becker: "I've always enjoyed my time on grass and I've had success at this tournament. I look forward to coming back next year."

Rojer: "To win an ATP World Tour title in front of the Dutch crowd is very nice. We’ve been working hard - that’s the main thing. We try to keep improving every time."
