Berdych wins in Rotterdam

11:23 am on 18 February 2014

The Czech tennis player Tomas Berdych has claimed his first ATP singles title in over a year with a comprehensive straight sets victory over Croatia's Marin Cilic in Rotterdam.

The world number seven, whose last title came in October 2012 and who lost three finals last season, eased to victory in 75 minutes.

For world number 37 Cilic, who knocked out Britain's Andy Murray in the quarter-finals, the defeat meant he missed the chance of wining consecutive tournaments after success in Zagreb last week.
