Diego Schwartzman claimed his first ATP tour title at the weekend as he beat Grigor Dimitrov in the final of the Istanbul Open.

The Jewish Argentine found himself a set and break down, but won 11 of the last 12 games to secure a 6-7, 7-6, 6-0 win.

The 23-year-old said: “It was an amazing match for me, I played well and fought all match. What happened to Grigor with the cramps also happened to me in Australia this year. With my doubles final and title in singles, it’s amazing.

“I’ve practised really hard to improve my tennis. I played all the points with 100 per cent effort and I need to. All the matches are tough, against Tomic, Dzumhur, Bagnis and Delbonis. I played really well.”

Schwartzman was though denied a doubles title win to go along with his singles success, as he and compatriot Andres Molteni were beaten by Israeli Dudi Sela and Italian Flavio Cipolla, 3-6, 7-5, 10-7.
