The biggest title in Monaco’s career, who was 27-year-old at the time. The Argentine  enjoyed the best period of his tennis life in 2012, and that triumph at the Rothenbaum Tennis Center allowed him to advance to the Top 10 for a while. “It’s amazing [to break the Top 10], it’s a dream come true,” declared Monaco. “I will always remember this great week because it’s very important for me and my team. It was a big goal we had pre-season when we were practising very hard.” He kept his 1st serve at 80% in the final… Haas  reached the final in his hometown the only time then, 15 years after his sensational debut in this tournament when he reached the semifinals as a player outside the Top 100 (didn’t play in Hamburg in years 2007-11).
Monaco’s route to his 6th title:
1 Cedrik-Marcel Stebe 6-4, 3-6, 7-5
2 Daniel Munoz-De La Nava 7-6(4), 6-3
Q Jeremy Chardy 6-3, 7-5
S Nicolas Almagro 3-6, 6-3, 6-4
W Tommy Haas 7-5, 6-4
