Taiwanese No. 1 Lu Yen-hsun lost a tight quarter-final against Alexandr Dolgopolov at the Aegon Open in Nottingham, England, on Thursday, but will travel to Wimbledon in good spirits after a good showing on the grass courts at the Nottingham Tennis Centre this week.
World No. 61 Lu fell to a 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 (7/4) defeat to the Ukrainian world No. 75, against whom he now has a 0-3 career record.
Lu saved eight of 11 break points and converted three of seven, but it was not enough as Dolgopolov edged the tight contest in 2 hours, 9 minutes, winning 112 of the 217 points contested. [FULL STORY]
