Pretty boring final, the first one in Lacko’s  career. Youzhny  controlled the match throughout, his dominance was especially visible in the course of sets when he collected 13 straight points. Once he got a break in the 2nd set he only focused on his own service games and converted the first match point with a backhand winner from the ad-court box. “This was my best match of the tournament,” Youzhny said. “I gained some confidence here but I don’t want to think about whether I will be in the top 10 again or not.”
Youzhny’s route to his 8th title:
1 Sergiy Stakhovsky 6-4, 7-6(4)
2 Grega Zemlja 6-1, 6-3
Q Ivo Karlovic 7-6(10), 3-6, 7-6(6)
S Michael Berrer 6-3, 6-4
W Lukas Lacko 6-2, 6-3
