That's the fifth career's ATP title for Fritz, who was the clear favorite before the final match with tournament's seed #4. The world's number 7 started the match impressively, wininng the opening set 6-0. Second set was much more tight, while the Serbian was more reliable on his own serve. Fritz was close to take a break in 8th game, producing two breakpoints, and close even to clinch the victory in 10th game, having a breakpoint which was the first match-point at the same time. Kecmanovic came out of all trouble and surprised the tournament's top seed, gaining his first break of the match in 11th game, despite Fritz being 40-15 up. The Serbian held his nerves in 12th game and moved the settlement into decider. Third set did not bring any surprise tough, as the American gained a break in 4th game and sealed the final victory with another one in 8th game, converting his second match-point.
It's a great time for Taylor Fritz, who is sure, that he will be ranked 5th in the following week's ATP ranking. He will become the first American male in the top 5 since Andy Roddick in September 2009.
