Tipsarevic clinches title

Chennai, Jan 6, 2013, IANS:

Second seed Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia won his fourth career ATP tour title with a 3-6, 6-1, 6-3 win over unheralded Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut in the final of the Chennai Open on Sunday. 

Agut was up and flying early with a break of serve in the second game and went on to win the first set before Tipsarevic, in his second consecutive final here, began his fightback.   

The Serb won five games in a row to take the second set with ease after twice breaking the Spaniard in the second and fourth.  The set was briefly held up as Agut took a three-minute medical time out when trailing 0-5.

In the third, Tipsarevic came up with a decisive break in the third game for a 2-1 lead,
requiring the Serb to merely hold his serve which he did while breaking Agut again in the ninth.

Paire-Wawrinka win

Frenchman Benoit Paire and Stanislas Wawrinka of Switzerland won the doubles title defeating Germans Andre Begemann and Martin Emmerich 6-2, 6-1.
