Damir Dzumhur became the first player from Bosnia and Herzegovina to win an ATP World Tour singles title on Sunday when he defeated Fabio Fognini 3-6, 6-4, 6-2 in the final of the St. Petersburg Open in Russia.

The 25-year-old Dzumhur will move to a career-high of approximately No. 40 on the new ATP rankings on Monday.

Dzumhur was 0-2 career against Fognini entering the final, but in the third set he broke in the seventh game to stop the No. 3-seeded 30-year-old from Italy.

Dzumhur was appearing in his second ATP final after losing earlier this year in the championship match at Winston-Salem to Roberto Bautista-Agut of Spain.

Fognini dropped to a 5-9 record in finals. He also finished runner-up at the 2012 St. Petersburg Open.
