German Benjamin Becker became the first qualifier to win an ATP World Tour title this season, as he blunted the hopes of Dutch wild card Raemon Sluiter 7-5, 6-3 in the final of the Ordina Open.

The 28 year-old Becker captured his first ATP World Tour title in his second final attempt – having finished runner-up in Bangkok in 2007 (l. to Tursunov). It has been 17 years since a German triumphed here, the last one been Michael Stich.

The right-hander joins Evegeny Korolev (Delray Beach) and Frank Dancevic (Eastbourne) as one of the three qualifiers to reach an ATP World Tour final.
