Feliciano Lopez reached one of his career goals on Sunday when the 35-year-old dispatched fourth-seeded Marin Cilic to win the Aegon Championships at The Queen's Club in London.
The left-hander survived two tiebreaks while rallying to a 4-6, 7-6 (2), 7-6 (8) victory to record his sixth career ATP title.
World number one Andy Murray was given a good workout against Feliciano Lopez as he booked a place in the quarter-finals of the Barcelona Open with a hard-earned 6-4 6-4 win.
Murray entered the Spanish tournament to build up match time as he continued his recovery from an elbow injury which saw him return to action last week in Monte Carlo after more than a month on the sidelines.
Coupled with the romantic location, this made for a very sentimental event for the twosome!
The groom’s friends and fellow professional athletes, paid homage to the sport by providing the couple with a tennis influenced exit.
In fact, some demons from 2014 emerged while Lopez was serving for the match.
Making the victory sweeter for Lopez was the realization that he really did prevail at The Queen's Club.
"It's the best week of my career, I would say," Lopez told reporters following the match. Outside of the Grand Slams, this is one of the most special tournaments.
The 29-year-old Scot had been given a bye through to the second round and then saw Australian Bernard Tomic pull out of their scheduled contest on Wednesday because of a back problem.
The tournament’s top seed, though, eventually got the chance of another workout on clay when taking on Spaniard Lopez, who produced stubborn resistance before Murray eventually produced the required response to progress into the last eight where he will meet either Albert Ramos-Vinolas or Roberto Bautista-Agut.
The opening set went with serve until Murray finally made the breakthrough in game eight to lead 5-3.
