Switzerland’s Marc-Andrea Huesler captured his first ATP Tour title on Sunday by defeating Danish teenager Holger Rune 6-4, 7-6 (10/8) in the final of the Sofia Open.
Huesler, 26, became the first Swiss player to win a men’s tour-level title since Roger Federer lifted the trophy at his hometown event in Basle in 2019.
