Italian Fabio Fognini claimed his fourth ATP Tour title by seeing off Slovakia’s Andrej Martin 6-4, 6-1 in the final in Umag, Croatia.

Fourth seed Fognini, 29, took the opening set with a break in game ten, before easing through the second by a double break to take the victory in just 70 minutes.

“It’s the final. Both players had nothing to lose. For me there was everything to win because I was the favourite,” said world number 39 Fognini.

“I have to be happy. A title is always a title. It was a great week of tennis.”
