Gstaad - Mikhail Youzhny of Russia won his first Swiss Open title on Sunday at his eighth attempt, beating Robin Haase of the Netherlands 6-3, 6-4.

Sixth-seeded Youzhny broke unseeded Haase's service once in each set to clinch his ninth career title, and third on clay-courts.

A former top-10 player now ranked No 33, the 31-year-old Youzhny had never previously reached the final at Gstaad in seven visits dating back to 2002.

Youzhny improved his record to 5-0 against the 57th-ranked Dutchman.

"I never beat you and it kind of hurts, but you deserved it," Haase said in an on-court interview.
