Gstaad - Unseeded Brazilian Thomaz Bellucci rallied to beat top-seeded Janko Tipsarevic of Serbia, 6-7 (6/8), 6-4, 6-2 in the Swiss Open final on Sunday.

Bellucci, ranked No 60, got his third career title and second at the Gstaad event. He won the clay-court event as a qualifier in 2009.

Tipsarevic was denied a second straight title after winning on clay last week at Stuttgart, Germany, where he beat Bellucci in the semi-finals.

Bellucci led 6-1 in the first-set tie-breaker before Tipsarevic reeled off seven points for the set.

At 5-4 in the second, Bellucci broke the eighth-ranked Serbian's serve to love to level the match.

Tipsarevic saved two match points but double-faulted to present a third, which the 24-year-old Brazilian took.

Bellucci and Tipsarevic both head next to the Olympics tournament at Wimbledon.
