Leonardo Mayer Wins First ATP Title in Hamburg

Leonardo Mayer

Argentine Leonardo Mayer claimed the first ATP title of his career by defeating top seeded David Ferrer in three sets, 6-7(3), 6-1, 7-6(4), at the Bet-at-Home Open in Hamburg, Germany.

Mayer, 27, had a break in the first set and a chance to serve it out at 5-4 before being broken by Ferrer and losing the subsequent tiebreak.

The second set was a more decisive affair with 46th ranked Mayer brushing off his earlier nerves and dominated proceedings to take the second stanza 6-1.

The third set was another close affair with Mayer again being broken back when serving for the set (and in this case, the match). Unlike the opening set, Ferrer wasn’t able to capitalize and the Argentine was able to close out victory in 2 hours 20 minutes to take the €272,300 winner’s cheque.
