BMW OPEN

FOR

FIRST TIME

MUNICH, Germany — Tommy Haas won the BMW Open for the first time at the 10th attempt on Sunday at age 35.

Third-seeded Haas beat defending champion Philipp Kohlschreiber 6-3, 7-6 (3) to win the first all-German title match in Munich in 48 years.

“I can hardly believe that I still managed to win here after such a long career,” said Haas, who emulated Frenchman Fabrice Santoro’s feat in winning an ATP tour event at Newport at the same age in 2008.

Haas capped an impressive week by beating Kohlschreiber in 83 minutes for his 14th ATP Tour title and his fourth on home soil.

“It’s a little dream,” said the Los Angeles-based Haas, who previously won two titles at Halle and one in Stuttgart, but lost the 2000 final here to Argentina’s Franco Squillari.

“Tommy played outstanding tennis, without any mistakes — almost a perfect match,” said the 29-year-old Kohlschreiber, the 2007 and ’12 champion.

Haas will rise to 13th in Monday’s world rankings. The rejuvenated German has an 18-7 match record this year, reaching the SAP Open final in San Jose, where he lost to Milos Raonic, and knocking out top-ranked Novak Djokovic en route to the semi-finals in Miami.
