Italy's Andreas Seppi wins Serbia Open

BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) Andreas Seppi of Italy beat Benoit Paire of France 6-3, 6-2 Sunday to win the Serbia Open for the second title of his career.

Paire was playing his first ATP final after upsetting top-seeded Pablo Andujar of Spain in Saturday's semifinals. Seppi, seeded second, won his first tournament last June in Eastbourne.

Paire got off to a good start with an early break, but he was soon undone by unforced errors and double-faults. Seppi broke immediately in the second set and then again to close the match, but only after Paire saved five match points.
