Swiss tennis ace Stanislas Wawrinka beat last year’s champion Tomas Berdych in the final of the ABN Amro World Tennis Tournament in Rotterdam.

The fourth seed came from a set behind to win 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 against the Czech, who is one place above him in the world rankings.

It was Wawrinka’s sixth straight win against Berdych and the ninth title of his career, the BBC reported.

Securing a break at the end of the second set, the Swiss went 4-1 up in the third and survived a late fightback.

Berdych bidding for this 11th career title, saved one match point when serving at 5-3 down, before Wawrinka clinched victory at the next opportunity on his own serve, the report added.
