GSTAAD, Switzerland (AP) Fabio Fognini won his fifth career title by beating 170th-ranked qualifier Yannick Hanfmann 6-4, 7-5 in the Swiss Open final on Sunday.

The fourth-seeded Italian was always in control, racing to a 4-0 lead in the first set and never allowing a break-point chance in the second.

Fognini's fifth title, all on outdoor clay courts, came from a wild-card entry to play at the Swiss Alps ski resort.
