- British No 1 beats compatriot Burrage 6-3, 6-3
- Emma Raducanu reveals struggles since US Open win
On the first day of the grass-court season, Katie Boulter made the decision to post on social media in recognition of becoming the British No 1 for the first time in her career. It was a post, she admitted, that took much deliberation – she was still ranked 126th in the world, after all, still far beneath where she believes her ability should take her. Boulter pledged to continue working towards her main goals, however long it took.
It has not taken long for her to begin achieving them. Six days later, she closed off a historic week for British tennis in Nottingham by winning her first career WTA title as a wildcard and without dropping a set, overwhelming Jodie Burrage 6-3, 6-3.
