STOCKHOLM (AP) — Top-seeded Tomas Berdych won the Stockholm Open for a third time on Sunday, beating American Jack Sock 7-6 (1), 6-2 in the final.

Berdych didn’t drop a set in the tournament and secured his second title of the year after winning in Shenzhen last month.

Sock was up a break in the first set but failed to serve it out at 5-4, and Berdych then dominated the tiebreaker. The Czech player didn’t face a break point in the second set, winning all 12 points on his first serve.

Berdych, who had already qualified for the season-ending ATP tour finals, said “I’ve definitely built up a good history here, which always helps. … Sometimes you find a place in the world that suits you well, and it’s the case here.”
