Greg Rusedski missed out on a £250,000 pay cheque after being beaten by Mario Ancic in the Superset Tennis final. The pair traded serves for 20 games before Rusedski lost out on the third set point to give Ancic an 11-9 win. "I wish I'd lost in the first round because I wouldn't be feeling so bad now. But Mario served too well and good luck to him," said Rusedski.

Rusedski took 80 minutes to beat Boris Becker in the opening round before beating Tommy Robredo in the semis. Ancic, who defeated Tim Henman at Wimbledon this year, beat American Robby Ginepri in the first round of the one-set event and reached the final after overcoming John McEnroe in a close semi-final. "It's been a great year in England for me and right now I'm speechless," said Ancic.

Rusedski was able to save two match points.

"It's my first tournament win, it isn't an ATP event but it was worth fighting for. I was just concentrating on serving." British youngster Andrew Murray also took part but was beaten 6-1 in just 24 minutes by McEnroe in the first round. "Murray is the type of player I hope I will be involved with because I think he has the potential to be a good player," said McEnroe.

"The whole idea is that I will be helping the Lawn Tennis Association initiative by working with some kids and he's the obvious choice. "At first the idea was I would be a figurehead but I want to get down in the trenches and hit with the kids." The event was a lot different to normal tournaments with court-side coaches giving advice and the use of Hawkeye to allow players the chance to challenge controversial line calls.
