Youzhny wins 9th title in Gstaad
World No. 33 Mikhail Youzhny became the first Russian champion in 18 years at the Crédit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad on Sunday. The Moscow native lifted his ninth ATP World Tour trophy as he defeated Robin Haase 6-3, 6-4 in the final.
It is the 12th time this year that a player aged 30-over has won an ATP World Tour title. The 31-year-old Youzhny captured his first trophy since February 2012, when he was victorious at the PBZ Zagreb Indoors (d. Lacko). He has a 9-11 record in finals. Yevgeny Kafelnikov was the last Russian to conquer Gstaad in 1995.
