Eastbourne - Feliciano Lopez defied chilly, blustery conditions to capture his first career grass court title at the Aegon International in Eastbourne on Saturday.
He won with 16 aces and forced Simon to save 17 of the 21 break points he faced.
"It was horrible for me - I had everything. I was so sick. I twisted my ankle. I felt terrible on the court in the first match, but I'm just happy that I managed to get through at all."
