Hamburg: Argentine Guillermo Coria beat compatriot Agustin Calleri 6-3, 6-4, 6-4 to win his first Masters Series event in Hamburg. The number 12 seed, in his third year on the circuit, wrapped up the 2.45 million euro tournament in a no-nonsense fashion to gain compensation for his recent Monte Carlo final drubbing by Spain's Juan Carlos Ferrero. His cause here was helped by a nervous Calleri competing in his first final at this level. Coria broke in the eighth game to clinch the opening set, and from then on never looked in any serious danger. "I'm so happy, I've played the best tennis of my life this week," said Coria, who only lost one set all week and who will be hoping his rich vein of form spills over to the French Open at Roland Garros.
