Britain's Jack Draper won his first Futures title in Nottingham - and ensured he will be the only 16-year-old in the top 1,000 of the men's rankings.

Surrey-born Draper beat compatriot Andrew Watson 3-6 7-6 (7-3) 6-0 in the final of the Nottingham GB Pro Series.

Draper, whose father Roger is a former chief executive of the Lawn Tennis Association, chose to skip the US Open juniors to play in the event.

He reached the boys' final at Wimbledon this year, losing to Tseng Chun-hsin.
