Chennai Open Ivan Ljubicic of Croatia captured in India with a 7-6 (6), 6-2 victory Sunday over Carlos Moya, who was trying to win the tournament for a third straight year. Ljubicic, seeded first, completed his semifinal earlier in the day by beating Belgium’s Kristof Vliegen 6-3, 3-6, 7-6 (6). That match had been disrupted by rain Saturday night. In the final, Moya squandered a 4-0 lead in the first-set tiebreaker. Ljubicic then broke serve twice in the second set. “It’s a long time that I played two matches in a day, but it helped me,” Ljubicic said. “The earlier match gave me the rhythm from the first point in the final.” Adelaide International France’s Florent Serra won in Australia for his second career ATP Tour title, beating Belgium’s Xavier Malisse 6-3, 6-4 on Sunday. Serra, who improved 159 places in the rankings last season to finish at No. 49, won his only previous title in Bucharest last season. “Adelaide was where I played my first ATP tournament (in 2003) so I’m very happy to win here,” Serra said. “Because I won in Bucharest last year I was a bit more relaxed but it was still tight.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
