Carlos Moya wins Swedish Open final

Bastad, Sweden:

Carlos Moya broke Younes El Aynaoui's serve in the penultimate game and won the Swedish Open singles title 6-3, 2-6, 7-5 on Sunday. It was the second title of the year for the 26-year-old Spaniard, who also won on clay at Acapulco, Mexico. He now has won nine ATP tournaments, all but one on clay, his favourite surface. Moya, seeded third behind El Aynaoui, broke the Moroccan in the 11th game of the decisive set on his second breakpoint when his crosscourt forehand hit the line. Moya, serving strongly throughout the match and hitting nearly 75 per cent of his first serves, then closed out the match with a love game before a sellout centercourt crowd of more than 5,000. The final, one of the best in years, lasted 2 hours, 7 minutes. A former French Open champion, Moya earned $57,000 for his first appearance in the Swedish Open, one of the world's oldest clay-court tournaments. (AP)
