Buperen executed 11 non-reflex service serve and broke his fourth-seeded opponent five times, inflicting a fourth defeat on him in a final match and denying him the crowning of his first title as well.
“We made a great effort during the preparations for the season and these efforts paid off, and behind the scenes my family also played a big role and made many sacrifices and winning a title in the end shows the size of what the family offered and I definitely dedicate the title to them,” said Boberen in an interview on the field after the victory.
The start of the 21-year-old was slow and lost the first set, but then quickly rose up and broke Public three times in the second set, winning 6-0.
In the third group, the former French Open champion continued his victory and advanced (4-2), before deciding the victory after his opponent committed a double mistake.
With this, Boberin became the second player to win his first tennis title this year, after Britain’s Dan Evans won the Murray River Open.
