It was the fourth ATP title of his career and his first since he won the grass-court tournament at Halle last June, which is traditionally one of the warm-up events before Wimbledon.

Having beaten Spain's Feliciano Lopez in Saturday's semi-final, this was Kohlschreiber's fifth win over the 23-year-old Cilic in their eight previous encounters. – Sapa-AFP
