Bangkok:

Fourth-ranked Andy Murray claimed his 19th career title in beating American Donald Young 6-2, 6-0 in the final of the Thailand Open at the Impact Arena in Muang Thong Thani on Sunday.

The top-seeded Briton was in complete control throughout the 48-minute match, exploiting the lack of experience and unforced errors from his 55th-ranked opponent.

Young was playing in his first tour final.

Murray opened the match by jumping out to a double break lead of 4-0. Young finally got on the board to make it 5-1 but lost the first set when Murray hit an overhead smash winner.

The second set featured more one-way traffic with Murray extending his advantage while his American opponent's game was marred by unforced errors, winning only three from 27 points in the set.

In the doubles final, Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi of Pakistan and Oliver Marach of Austria beat Germans Michael Kolhmann and Alexander Waske 7-6 (7-4), 7-6 (7-5).
