Switzerland's Marc Rosset beat compatriot Roger Federer 2-6, 6-3, 7-6 (5) to win the Marseille Open on Sunday.
It was the first all-Swiss final in the history of the ATP Tour. Both players were unseeded.
This was Rosset's 14th ATP title, the sixth on French soil.
Federer was playing in his first career final. He staved off three match points at 4-5 in the third set with three backhands down the line.
Federer also rallied from 2-5 to 5-5 in the third-set tie-breaker. Serving at 5-5, Rosset missed his first serve, and his second delivery flicked the net for a net cord, a half-inch from a double-fault. He then served out to win the tiebreaker.
