Nikolay Davydenko beat Paul-Henri Mathieu 6-4, 6-2 on Sunday to win the German Open, his first title of the year.

The second-seeded Davydenko captured the 15th title of his career and became the first Russian to win the clay-court tournament.

The Russian broke for a 4-3 lead and never looked back. Mathieu, the 13th-seeded Frenchman, lost his first final of the year.

Davydenko last won a title in Warsaw in 2008.

Injuries forced Davydenko to miss close to four months at the start of the season.
