TENNIS star Paul Jubb is confident that he can build on his success at the LTA British Tour after reaching the final of the competition.

The York-born youngster was beaten in straight sets by Cameron Norrie, who is ranked in the world's top 80, in the final of the week two of the British Tour, in a match taking place behind closed doors at the National Tennis Centre in London.

In a clash of the top two seeds, Norrie needed just over an hour to secure the victory, twice breaking Jubb's serve in the first set to win the opening stage 6-1.

The former world number 41 then backed that up in the second, breaking the Jubb serve in the first and last games to win the second set 6-3.

In all, Norrie didn't drop a set in any of his matches throughout the tournament.

Reflecting on his tournament, Jubb told the BBC: "It's been a good experience, I played a lot of good matches and (put in) some good performances.

"Overall, it's been a positive week.

"I gained a lot of good confidence and played a lot of good tennis, so it's something to build on for sure.

"I've just got to keep it up."

On an injury he was carrying heading into the contest, Jubb added: "It was a tough one, I've got a little niggle but I did my best to try and mix things up and make it hard for him but it didn't work out in the end."

Jubb's tournament began by coming from a set down to defeat Germany's Max Basing 10-6 in the tie-break.

He lost the first set 6-3 before taking the second set 6-2.

Jubb followed that up with two straight sets victories over a couple of fellow Brits - Alastair Gray (7-5 6-2) and Anton Matusevich (6-3 6-3) - to set up the final against Norrie.
