Slovakian qualifier Martin Klizan defeated top-seeded Fabio Fognini 2—6, 6—1, 6—2 in the BMW Open final on Sunday for his second ATP World Tour title.

Klizan left centre court briefly due to apparent stomach problems in the first set, before he rallied to win in just under 90 minutes.

The 24-year-old Slovakian had lost his last three meetings with Fognini but he defeated the 15-ranked Italian in his only previous final, at St. Petersburg in October 2012.

The 111th-ranked Klizan defeated defending champion Tommy Haas in Saturday’s semifinals, having already seen off Denis Istomin — who knocked out two-time former champion Philipp Kohlschreiber — and Dudi Sela.

Fognini missed out on his seventh title.
