Klahn quickly adapted to the tricky conditions and won the first set comfortably against Ito. In the second set the American number one seed claimed an early break and looked set to claim the match when serving at 5-3 however Ito managed to break Klahn and force the set to a tiebreak. In the tiebreak the Japanese third seed had set points but was unable to convert and Klahn eventually claimed a nail biting the tie break 11-9 to seal the match and the 2014 title.
It was Klahn’s second Challenger win of the year and moves his ranking up to the mid 60′s meaning he will now get direct entry to most top level ATP events around the world.
