Nikoloz Basilashvili captured his fifth ATP Tour title on Sunday, completing the week at the BMW Open without dropping a set in five matches.
He got off to a fast start and came through a 30-minute rain interruption en route to beating seventh seed Jan-Lennard Struff of Germany 6-4, 7-6(5) over 86 minutes in the Munich final.
"It wasn't easy and I was super-tight at the end," said Basilashvili. "It was very difficult. It's never easy playing Jan, he's a very big fighter and serves really well. I am super happy. It seems like German conditions suit me. This is my fifth [ATP Tour] title and it will give me confidence for the upcoming tournaments."
Basilashvili, who was competing in his seventh tour-level final (5-2), captured the Qatar ExxonMobil Open crown (d. Bautista Agut) in March. He also recently beat Struff 7-5, 4-6, 6-3 in the Sardegna Open quarter-finals.
