Spain's Nicolas Almagro won a quick fire battle and earned his sixth career title by beating Robin Soderling in the final of the Swedish Open.
The Sharp shooter took just under two hours to overcome the local favourite and number one seed. Early on, Soderling demonstrated the sort of form that took him to the French Open final - but unforced errors appeared in his game. Almagro broke serve in the 11th game and promptly wrapped up the first set 7-5, with Soderling showing his frustration.There was a dramatic turnaround in the second set. Soderling found depth and placement on his groundtsrokes put his opponent on the run.
The world number five raced to a 3-0 lead and went on to clinch the set 6-3.The errors which beset Soderling in the first set came back for more in the third with the number one seed handing too many points his opponent, who also dominated the long rallies by mixing power with deft touches.
Fittingly, a Soderling double fault handed the match to Almagro 7-5, 3-6, 6-2. The number four seed celebrated his sixth career title and first since February 2009. Almagro became the fifth Spaniard to win the event in the past 10 years following Carlos Moya, Rafael Nadal, Tommy Robredo and David Ferrer.
