Jamie Baker has won the singles title at the AEGON GB Pro-Series Cumberland after defeating compatriot Ed Corrie 6-1, 4-6, 6-1 in Saturday's final.

The 25 year-old from Glasgow, who was seeded fifth, won the opening set for the loss of just one game and then rallied after dropping the second set to eventually secure victory.

The Briton, who celebrated his birthday earlier in the week, claimed his 11th Futures title to end the week with five wins for the loss of just two sets.

In the semi-finals on Friday Baker came from a set down to knock out Josh Goodall, winning 5-7, 6-3, 6-4, and Corrie also needed three sets to defeat third seed Riccardo Ghedin of Italy 4-6, 6-3, 6-0.

The men's doubles title was won by top seeds Sean Thornley & David Rice after they beat Ruan Roelofse & Sanam Singh 6-3, 6-2 in the final.

Victory for the British pair was their fifth Futures title of the year so far and they currently sit at British No.9 and 10 in the ATP doubles rankings.
