German veteran Tommy Haas won his second Vienna Open title in Austria defeating Dutchman Robin Haase, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, in two hours fifteen minutes. His first Vienna title was twelve years ago.
Haase is a two-time former winner of the Vienna Open himself and pushed his near namesake all the way in a toughly contested encounter.
It was the fifteenth career title for Haas, who has enjoyed a rich vein of form since returning to the tour after a long-term injury. He is positioned 12th in the ATP race and still hopeful of gatecrashing the end-of-year World Tour Finals.
