After reaching his first Masters 1000 final earlier this season in Monte-Carlo, Lajovic earned himself another career milestone on Sunday, taking him the Plava Laguna Croatia Open silverware in Umag with a 7-5 7-5 dispatch of qualifier Attila Balazs.

“It was a match that I’ll remember for the rest of my career,” said Lajovic. “I couldn’t be happier that I won. I had to work for every point, so I’m tired now, but also relieved to have to won my first title.”

Lajovic improves to 17-16 for the season and rises 10 spots in then latest ATP rankings to No. 26 - just three places from his career-high mark that came after his aforementioned run to the Monte-Carlo final.

Balazs also scores himself a new career-high ranking, rocketing up 66 rungs on the rankings ladder to No. 141. The Hungarian - who retired from the sport five years ago - was aiming to become the first qualifier this season to win an ATP World Tour title.

Meanwhile, it was third time lucky for Nicolas Jarry as the Chilean also landed himself a first ATP title at the Swedish Open in Bastad, beating Juan Ignacio Londero 7-6(7) 6-4 in Sunday’s showpiece.

Jarry had lost his two previous finals in Sao Paolo last year and Geneva a couple of months ago, but he made no mistake in Bastad - and now he joins his grandfather Jaime Fillol Sr as a tour-level champion after he won six tour-level trophies between 1971 and 1982.

“It is amazing. I am really happy for [the title],” said Jarry. “It was a really tough match… Juan Ignacio was playing great. There was a lot of wind and I couldn’t manage to play as well as the other days, but [with] titles, you have to win them as you can and I am really happy to be able to pull this one off.”

Jarry moves up to a career-high ranking of No. 38 - a jump of 26 spots - while Londero, who won his first ATP title in Cordoba earlier this season, climbs to a career-high mark of No. 56.

Elsewhere, Isner captured his first ATP title of an injury-ravaged season at the Hall of Fame Open in Newport, defeating Alexander Bublik in straight sets in the final.

Isner has now won four titles in Newport and is looking to get his season back on track after missing three months of action with a broken foot sustained during his Miami Masters final defeat to Roger Federer in March.

“My very first ATP Tour event was here in 2007 and I didn’t enjoy the courts that much back then because I didn’t know how to play on them,” said Isner. “To say that I’ve won this event four times isn’t something I thought would be possible.”

Isner moves up one spot in the latest ATP rankings to No. 14, while Bublik - who was appearing in his first ATP final - rises 12 places to a career-high No. 71.

A bunch of top 10 stars are back in action this week, with Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Fabio Fognini leading the field in Hamburg, while Isner headlines the Atlanta field and Wimbledon semi-finalist Roberto Bautista Agut stars in Gstaad.
