Rotterdam - Stan Wawrinka has beaten Tomas Berdych 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 on Sunday to claim the first indoor title of his career in the ATP Rotterdam World Tennis event.

The Swiss fourth seed lifted his second trophy of the season after winning in Chennai to start the year and reaching an Australian Open semi-final last month.

The 29-year-old ranked eighth in the world, who won the Australian Open a year ago, now owns nine career titles. He came good for his latest trophy after last playing Rotterdam a decade ago.

Third seed Berdych had been looking for a second straight title at the Ahoy Stadium and was bidding to defend a title for the first time in his career.

Wawrinka, who heads to Marseille next week as second seed, finished on just under two hours with three aces and three breaks of serve.

The Swiss has now won his last six matches over Czech rival Berdych and improved to 11-5 in their series.
