Hamburg - Argentina's world number 46 Leonardo Mayer has captured his first ATP title on Sunday when he fought back to defeat top seeded Spaniard David Ferrer, 6-7 (3/7), 6-1, 7-6 (7/4) in the Hamburg final.

Mayer becomes the lowest-ranked winner of an ATP World Tour 500 tournament since number 54 Radek Stepanek clinched the Washington title in 2011.

The 27-year-old Mayer is enjoying one of the best spells of his career. Last month, the right-hander advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon and made his first ATP World Tour final in Vina del Mar earlier this year.

The 32-year-old Ferrer was contesting his 44th tour-level title match and dropped to a 21-23 finals record.
