– Steve Johnson earned his moment in the spotlight, winning his maiden ATP World Tour title in just his second final.
– Johnson is the third first-time winner this year, joining Nick Kyrgios (Marseille) and Diego Schwartzman (Istanbul).
– The American has enjoyed great success in Nottingham, having notched the ATP Challenger Tour crown on the same court in 2013, before the tournament moved to the ATP World Tour 250 level.
– Pablo Cuevas was vying for his sixth ATP World Tour title and first on grass.
– Dominic Inglot and Daniel Nestor claimed their first team title, edging top seeds Ivan Dodig and Marcelo Melo.
– Individually, Nestor notched his 89th ATP World Tour doubles title, while Inglot hoisted his fifth trophy.

Johnson: “It feels really good, I’m not going to lie. I had some ups and downs so far this year. To find my groove on the grass is fantastic. I had a good week at Queen’s Club and felt pretty comfortable on the grass. Once I got here and played my first couple of matches, I knew I was definitely a contender to win this.

“I take lots of confidence from this. Anytime you can be the last guy standing at a tournament is definitely a great feeling. I’m super happy, but pretty tired emotionally from stopping and starting so much with the rain the past few days. Starting Monday comes Wimbledon, so there’s no time to relax with another tournament right around the corner.”

Inglot: “We started a bit slowly, but we were able to stay in their service games. That let us bide our time. They don’t come much tougher than these guys, that’s for sure. To get a win against this caliber of a team before Wimbledon is a big boost. We did well to hang in there even after dropping the match points.”

Nestor: “I think the rain actually helped us refocus. We were still in a good situation, and we came back out pretty strongly. Our opponents played well to get a second life. It was high-quality tennis. There is so little margin for error in the doubles game right now. Every match can be 50/50, but you can also beat anyone as well.”
