Somdev Devvarman lifted his third ATP Challenge title as he outclassed top seed Aleksandr Nedovyesov 6-3, 6-1 in the final of the ONGC-GAIL Delhi Open on Sunday.
The start to the title clash was great but Nedovyesov’s challenge fizzled out as the game wore on. The way Somdev dominated the proceedings was evident with the fact that he conceded just 10 points on his eight service games.
Out of these, five were conceded only in the fifth game of the second set.
“Aleksandr is a fantastic player. He made it incredibly tough for me initially. I wish him success for the rest of the season,” Somdev said after the win.
He also thanked fans for coming up in good numbers.
“It’s incredible to see so many people in a Challenger. Thanks for coming.”
