Philipp Kohlschreiber Defeats Joao Sousa To Win The Generali Open

Philipp Kohlschreiber got his eighth ATP Career Tour title the second in three years at the Generali Open defeating Joao Sousa 6-3, 6-4.

Kohlschreiber retired from his Semi Final in Hamburg a week ago due to a Thigh Injury but despite that the 47th-ranked German rallied from a break down in both sets and won five of the last six games to close out the win at the final clay-court event of the season.

"This is a fairytale. I wasn't fit starting the week so I didn't believe this would be possible. It's just incredible," said Kohlschreiber, who thanked his new coach, former Austrian pro Markus Hipfl, and his two physiotherapists.

"Without you I wouldn't even have stepped on court this week," said the German, who last triumphed in Munich last year and lost his only previous final this season after missing five match points against Borna Coric in Marrakech, Morocco, in April.
