CHENNAI, India (AP) -- Second-seeded Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia won the Chennai Open title Sunday by beating Roberto Bautista-Agut of Spain 3-6, 6-1, 6-3 in the final.

The ninth-ranked Tipsarevic won his fourth ATP title against an opponent who was playing in his first tour final. It was the Spaniard, though, who had the better start, winning the first three games.

Tipsarevic, who lost to Milos Raonic in last year's final, dominated the second set and then broke early in the third.

Bautista-Agut, who beat top-seeded Tomas Berdych in the quarterfinals, seemed to struggle with a leg injury and needed on-court treatment during the second set.
