Andy Murray notched his fifth title at the Aegon Championships on Sunday in London, England, defeating Milos Raonic 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-3. Trailing by a set and 3-0, Murray reeled off four straight games and never looked back. Improving to 6-3 against Raonic in lifetime meetings, Murray has won five matches in a row against his Canadian opponent. The Brit, who recently turned 29, has now made four straight finals on Tour, dating back to the Madrid Open.

Both Murray and Raonic will next see action at Wimbledon, which begins on June 27th.



Unheralded German Florian Mayer captured the biggest title of his career on Sunday in Halle, Germany, upending countryman Alexander Zverev 6-2, 5-7, 6-3. Needing five match points to seal his victory, Mayer used his unorthodox game-style to off-set his powerful opponent. Being injured for the better part of two years, Mayer won 386,925 euors for his efforts and 500 ATP World Tour points. Currently ranked No. 192 in the world, Mayer is set to re-enter the top 100 at approximately No. 78 when the rankings are updated on Monday.

Zverev, who was looking for his maiden Tour level title, will hit No. 28 in the world on Monday, which is a career high for the 19-year-old.
