Paris - Leonardo Mayer secured his second career title on Sunday as he defeated Germany's Florian Mayer 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 in the Hamburg clay-court final.

Argentina's Mayer, ranked 138 in the world, had already won here in 2014 but was a lucky loser this time, profiting from Martin Klizan's withdrawal due to injury after losing in the final round of qualifying.

After a week in which he notably ousted the top seed Albert Ramos-Vinolas, Leonardo Mayer will rocket into the top 50 when the latest rankings come out on Monday.

Florian Mayer, 33 years old and 101 in the rankings, had been looking for the first title of his career.
