Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Britain’s Andy Murray beat Donald Young of the U.S. in the final of the Thailand Open to win his third ATP tennis title of the year. Serbia’s Janko Tipsarevic claimed his first-ever title at the Malaysian Open.
The 24-year-old Murray, ranked No. 4 on the ATP Tour, defeated the 55th-ranked Young 6-2, 6-0 in Bangkok.
“I served very well throughout and didn’t give him any opportunities,” Murray told the ATP Tour’s website. “It was a great match.”
Murray has also won at Queen’s Club in London and at the Cincinnati Masters in 2011, while he was runnerup to Serbia’s Novak Djokovic in the Australian Open. He reached his maiden ATP final at the Thailand Open back in 2005, losing to Switzerland’s Roger Federer.
Young, 22, will break into the top 50 for a first time tomorrow.
Tipsarevic, 27, ended his wait for a title with a 6-4, 7-5 victory against Cyprus’s Marcos Baghdatis in Kuala Lumpur. He’d previously suffered four defeats in finals, including two this year.
Yesterday, Poland’s Agnieszka Radwanska beat Vera Zvonareva of Russia 6-3, 6-2 to win the Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo.
