Thiem beats Goffin to take Swiss Open title

GSTAAD, Switzerland (AP) Dominic Thiem of Austria won his second straight title on Sunday, beating top-seeded David Goffin of Belgium 7-5, 6-2 in the Swiss Open final.

The 24th-ranked Thiem added the Swiss trophy to the Croatia Open he won one week earlier. Thiem's run of three clay-court titles this season started in April at Nice, France.

In a match of nine service breaks, 14th-ranked Goffin won four straight games in the first set and served with a 5-4 lead.

Thiem leveled when Goffin double-faulted and broke again to clinch the set.

The third-seeded Thiem dropped serve to open the second set but lost only more game in closing out the match in a little under 90 minutes.

Thiem is top-seeded next week in another clay-court event, at Kitzbuehel in his native Austria.
