A round-up of some of the action involving Scottish players last week.

Doubles Delight for Cameron Norrie
Cameron Norrie teamed up with fellow Brit Kyle Edmund at the Estoril Open to win the ATP 250 doubles title. The pair failed to drop a set on their way to lifting the trophy with a number of strong performances.

After reaching the semi-finals, the pair beat L.Mayer (ARG) and J.Sousa (POR) 6-2, 7-6 to set up a final against W.Koolhof (NED) and A.Sitak (NZL). They continued their strong run winning the final 6-4, 6-2 to claim their first ATP World Tour title together.

Cameron also reached the Last 16 of the singles draw, narrowly losing out on a place in the Quarter-final. He first beat 6th seed and World Number 44 R.Hasse (NED) over three sets in the first round, before losing out to R.Carballes Baena (ESP) in the next, after having match point. Cameron then went on to lose the tie-break.

Home final for Jonny O’Mara

Jonny O’Mara had the backing of the home crowd at the recent ATP Challenger Glasgow Trophy, however it wasn’t enough to see him and partner Scott Clayton lift the doubles title.

The pair played exceptionally well throughout the tournament and played their part in an entertaining final, which was won by the experienced G.Granollers and G.Olaso of Spain, after a 6-1, 7-5 win.

There were a number of other Scots who featured throughout the week in front of the home support, gaining valuable experience from a tournament of this size. Scott Duncan and Kieran Macarty had a brilliant tournament reaching the Quarter-finals of the doubles draw before losing out to the eventual winners in a closely fought match 7-5, 6-4. Connor Thomson and Jacob Fearnley narrowly lost out in a match tie break to the 3rd seeds in the first round losing out 6-3, 6-7, 6-10, and University of Stirling pair Scott Macaulay and Reuben Henry also lost out in the first round.

In the Singles draw Aidan McHugh received a wildcard into the main draw, losing out to 3rd seed D.Guez (FRA) 6-7, 3-6. Jacob Fearnley, Kieran Macarty, Scott Duncan and Connor Thomson all also received wildcards into the Singles Qualifying.
