Argentina’s world number 46 Mayer captured his first ATP title when he stunned top-seeded Spaniard David Ferrer, 6-7 (3/7), 6-1, 7-6 (7/4) in the final. Mayer became the lowest-ranked winner of an ATP World Tour 500 tournament since number 54 Radek Stepanek clinched the Washington title in 2011. “I can’t believe it,” said Mayer after the match. “I was able to do it against Ferrer, who is one of the best players on this surface. I’m really happy and it still hasn’t sunk in that I won.”
