CHENGDU, China (AP) – Bernard Tomic defeated top seed Fabio Fognini 6-1, 3-6, 7-6 (7) to win the Chengdu Open championship on Sunday.
The 25-year-old Australian, ranked No. 123 in the world, broke 12 aces and saved seven of the 11 break points he faced to win his first ATP title since Bogotá 2015.
No. 13 Fognini did not achieve his goal of becoming the first Italian to win four tour-level titles in one season, after winning at Sao Paolo, Bastad and Los Cabos earlier this year.
