(October 19, 2014) Top seed Tomas Berdych kept himself in the ATP World Tour Race to London by defeating defending champion Grigor Dimitrov 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 on Sunday to win the Stockholm Open for the second time.
Berdych won his 10th career title beating the defending champion. The Czech’s win keeps him on course to qualify for the season-ending ATP finals in London for the fifth straight year.
“It’s the first and only tournament I’ve won twice,” Berdych said. “The hospitality and care here is very nice. That’s why I like to come back. I feel at home here.”
“It was a good match, “Dimitrov said. “I give all my respect to Tomas. It’s never easy to lose a final, but he was just better out there today. He had bigger momentum in the second and third (sets). That made the biggest difference.”
