ATP LOS CABOS: Ivo Karlovic successfully handles Feliciano Lopez to win his second ATP title in 2016

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.

Karlovic will open up his campaign against Argentinean Juan Monaco - Lopez against a qualifier. [3] Ivo Karlovic (CRO) d. [1] Feliciano Lopez (ESP) 7-6 (5) 6-2 Photo--Abierto Los Cabos Also read: Andy Murray meets and takes a selfie in Rio with NBA superstar... (PIC INSIDE)
