Fabio Fognini became the first Italian to win a Monte Carlo title in more than half a century as he beat Dusan Lajovic 6-3, 6-4 in Sunday’s final.

The 13th seed followed his semi-final upset of 11-time champion Rafael Nadal as he defeated an unseeded Serbian playing in his first ATP final.

The last Italian to win here was Nicola Pietrangeli in 1968.

The 31-year-od Fognini set himself up for the title on Saturday with his stunning 6-4, 6-2 victory over Nadal to end the Spanish star’s 25-set win streak in the principality.
