Stan Wawrinka secured his second ATP World Tour title of the year with a straight-sets victory over Marcos Baghdatis in the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championship final.

The 6-4 7-6 (15/13) win was the Swiss’ sixth straight victory over the 30-year-old Baghdatis.

Baghdatis broke Wawrinka to take an early 3-2 lead in the opening set but was then immediately broken to love as the Swiss battled straight back.

Wawrinka then broke Baghdatis again in the 10th game to clinch the opening set in 42 minutes.

The second set went to a tie-break after no breaks of serve and the Swiss had to save five set points before he closed out the match on his fourth match point to secure victory in an hour and 54 minutes.
