Nikoloz Basilashvili dethrones Mayer to win Hamburg title
Despite struggling with his first serve, Basilashvili broke his Argentine opponent in the ninth game to clinch the opening set.
Having already recovered from a 6-0 second set in his semi-final win over Chilean Nicolas Jarry, Basilashvili was unfazed by the challenge as he grabbed a crucial break in the 11th game before wrapping up the victory on his own serve.
"I'm pretty sure every player worked so hard for this but it's an unbelievable moment for me."
He becomes the fourth qualifier to triumph at the tour level this season, joining Russia's Daniil Medvedev, Bosnian Mirza Basic and Roberto Carballes Baena of Spain.
