Italian Fabio Fognini won his 2nd title in as many weeks by saving 3 match points on the way to defeat Federico Delbonis 4-6 7-6(8) 6-2 in the final of the bet-at-home open in Hamburg. Delbonis had defeated Roger Federer in the semifinal to reach his first career ATP tour final.

Fognini is on a 10 match-winning streak and won his first career ATP title last week in Stuttgart. He will rise to #19 on the ATP World Tour when the rankings are released on Monday. He has 25 match wins on clay this year, second behind the King of Clay Rafael Nadal.
