Fantastic Fransisco claims first title in Båstad


The all-Argentine final in Båstad was a high class battle for full stands in the scorching sun in Båstad. A final day just as it should be filled with drama, emotions and a possible first title at stake or a second one to be claimed.

The first set was an incredibly even story that went to a tie-break where the 23-year-old Cerundolo pulled away with a 4-1 lead and where Baez tried to come back but did not manage to use his aggressive game as he had in former matches.

Cerundolo switched up in the second set and did not give compatriot Baez any break chances and could eventually win 76 (4) 62 claiming his first ATP tour title at Nordea Open in Båstad.
