Posted by Admin On 10:52 AM

Philipp Kohlschreiber was hand over the Gerry Weber Open title when fellow German Philipp Petzschner retire through injury in the second set. The first serve was conquered by serve, Kohlschreiber failing to take the only break point on offer at 5-5 but finally winning the set with his second set point in a tie-break.

Petzschner had action on a lower back wound before the second set began and, having been broken at the first time of asking, he pulled out of the match to leave Kohlschreiber a 7-6 (7/5) 2-0 winner in just over an hour.

It was the world number 49's third title on the ATP Tour and he said:I think it was a fantastic week. Every day I played a great match.Of course, the final ended quite short, but in general the week was huge and to win in Germany is unbelievable.

I felt nervous playing another German in the final and I knew he'd played a great week as well. I knew what was waiting.He was portion big, so I didn't have so many chances, but I started to push up my level at the end of the first set and play some actually good points in the tie-break.It was very significant to win the first set, then maybe the early break and his wound required him to stop earlier than if he had won the first set maybe.
