11:39 am on 5 May 2014

Martin Klizan became the first qualifier to win the Munich Open when he overturned a one-set deficit to stun Italian top seed Fabio Fognini 2-6 6-1 6-2.

The left-handed Slovak, ranked nearly 100 places lower than Fognini, produced some thundering forehands and deft dropshots to run Fognini ragged on his way to a second ATP title.
