NOTTINGHAM, England (AP) Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan beat Sam Querrey of the United States 7-6 (1), 7-6 (6) in the final of the grass-court Nottingham Open to win his first ATP title on Saturday.

The No. 92-ranked Istomin dropped to his knees with a scream after winning his first title match in a battle of big servers at the Wimbledon warm-up tournament.

Querrey recovered from 5-2 down in the second set by breaking twice to take it to a tiebreaker, which he led 4-1.

The 12th-seeded Querrey says ''he's a tough player, he's got a great serve. He hung in there today when it got tough.''

Querrey was looking to end a three-year wait for a title, having last won in Los Angeles in 2012.
