Czech tennis player Tomáš Berdych, seeded fourth, defeated Russia’s Mikhail Youzhny 6-4, 4-6, 7-6 in Sunday’s final of Munich's ATP claycourt tournament, securing the first title this year and fifth career ATP tour title. Berdych took the first set in only 44 minutes but then allowed the unseeded Russian to come back in the second. In the third set, Berdych was already 5-1 ahead but Youzhny rallied back to 5-5 and had the Czech on the ropes in the tie-breaker. Berdych however produced some faultless play under pressure and won 7-5, picking up the 71,700 euros winners cheque.
