Nottingham Open: Andy Murray defeats Arthur Cazaux in straight sets to win second consecutive title on grass

By Reuters: Andy Murray ramped up his Wimbledon preparations by beating Arthur Cazaux in the Nottingham Open final on Sunday to lift a second straight grass court title while fellow Briton Katie Boulter beat compatriot Jodie Burrage in the women's final.

The three-time Grand Slam champion put in a clinical performance to win 6-4 6-4, converting three of his four break points against the Frenchman to claim the Challenger Tour title.

The 36-year-old Murray did not drop a set across his five matches in the tournament and improved his winning streak on grass to 10 matches after his victory in Surbiton last week.

"It was a really good week, I really enjoyed my time here. The courts have played brilliantly, the ground staff did an excellent job," Murray said.

"I played really well and got better as the week went on and I'm glad to get through - on to Queen's. I'm absolutely pumped."

The 36-year-old Briton, who has resurrected his career after hip resurfacing surgery, skipped the French Open to focus on the grass court swing.

He is next in action at the Queen's Club Championships, which start on Monday.
