Italy’s Andreas Seppi captured his second career title after he beat Benoit Paire of France 6-3 6-2 in the Serbia Open final.
It was the first tour final for Paire, who started the match with an early break. But Seppi managed to break back right away and the Frenchman’s unforced errors helped him to take a 1-0 set lead.
Two breaks of serve for Seppi in the second set were more than sufficient and he closed out the match after just 1 hour and 10 minutes.
In yesterday’s semifinals, Seppi dismissed the 4th seed David Nalbandian 2-6 6-2 7-5 and Paire eliminated no.1 seed Pablo Andujar 6-3 1-6 6-3.
This event is organized by the Djokovic family, but the Serbian world no.1 decided not to take part this year because of the death of his grandfather.
