An outsider takes the trophy in Hamburg’s Rothenbaum district
The hot tournament week that saw temperatures peak at more than 30°C ended with Nikoloz Basilashvili winning the exciting final against Leonardo Mayer on Sunday. Basilashvili, who was the underdog, won the German Open in the Rothenbaum district of Hamburg in three sets (6:4, 0:6, 7:5) against the defending champion Leonardo Mayer in an encounter that lasted just over two hours. The protégé of German coach Jan de Witt thus secured prized money to the tune of around € 350,000.
The doubles final was won by Julio Peralta from Chile and Horacio Zeballos from Argentina. The two beat Oliver Marach from Austria and Mate Pavic from Croatia in a thrilling match (6:1, 4:6 and 10:6).
