ESTORIL, Portugal - Top-seeded Casper Ruud won his 10th ATP title by beating Serbian friend Miomir Kecmanovic 6-2, 7-6 (3) in the final of the Estoril Open.

The Norwegian did not drop serve to secure his first trophy of the season.

“It’s my first time in Estoril and first time lucky, I guess,” Ruud said. “To be here with the trophy this Sunday is very special. It’s been quite some months since I won my last title, so it’s very important.”

Sixth-seeded Kecmanovic was seeking his second ATP singles title. The 40th-ranked Kecmanovic saved five break points he faced in the second set, but was unable to convert three of his own to avoid the tiebreaker.

Kecmanovic also lost the doubles final in Estoril.

All of Ruud’s titles have come on clay. He will move to No. 4 in Monday’s rankings.
