Associated Press Associated Press 24/07/2016

Top-seeded Feliciano Lopez of Spain has won his first career clay-court title, beating Robin Haase of the Netherlands 6-4 7-5 in the Swiss Open final.

The 34-year-old's fifth career tournament title on Sunday followed two on grass and two on hard courts.

Ten years after losing the Gstaad final to Richard Gasquet of France, Lopez lifted the trophy on his seventh trip back to the Swiss Alps venue.

Lopez arrived ranked No.21 and should return to the top 20 when the rankings are updated on Monday.

The 95th-ranked Haase had his service broken once in the first set and twice in the second as Lopez completed victory in less than 80 minutes.
