Croatian tennis player Ivo Karlovic has won the Abierto Mexicano Los Cabos after defeating Spaniard Feliciano Lopez in the event's final. The 37-year-old needed one hour and 24 minutes to clinch a 7-6 (5) 6-2 victory over the 18th-ranked player in the world.
Throughout the match big-serving Karlovic fired 21 aces and won 33-43 (76%) of his first serve points. Less than a month after his first and only title in 2016 came at the Hall of Fame Tennis Championship in Newport - Karlovic has won the another one - this time in Mexico.
The 34-year-old Spaniard had a chance to win back-to-back titles as he won the Swiss Open in Gstaad prior to the Mexican event in Los Cabos. Both players now turn their focus to next week's the Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati,where seventh Masters 1000 tournament of the year is set to be played.
