6:23 am on 15 June 2009

Germany's Tommy Haas has won his first tennis title for more than two years, and he's claimed the scalp of the world number four Novak Djokovic 6-3 6-7 6-1 in the Halle grass court tournament in Germany.

Haas, a former world number two who has been plagued by a shoulder injury, beat Djokvic

6-3 6-7 6-1.

Djokovic has never won a title on grass and refused to label himself one of the favourites for Wimbledon.
