ÜBERLINGEN, August 28, 2017

Second seed Adrian Bodmer is the champion of the $15,000 Überlingen Open. The World No. 592 from Switzerland defeated German teenager and first-time finalist Louis Wessels 7-6, 6-3 in Sunday’s singles final.

Bodmer sent down seven aces, winning 75 per cent of his first service points. He didn’t lose his serve and capitalized on two of his own break point chances to seal victory in one hour and 34 minutes.

The 22-year-old celebrated his second ITF Futures title following his triumph in Santa Margherita Di Pula, Italy, earlier this season. Bodmer takes away from Lake Constance $2,160 in prize money as well as 18 ATP ranking points.

Wessels, who celebrated his 19th birthday on Sunday took the positives from the tournament.

“It was another amazing week for me here in Überlingen,” he told after the final. “I also lost on my birthday last year, but I really feel comfortable here.”

Earlier in the day, the all-German-combination of Rene Schulte and Peter Torebko clinched the doubles title with a 6-2, 6-4 win over Erik Crepaldi from Italy and German Peter Heller. The final lasted 58 minutes.
