Tennis-Monaco overcomes Starace to clinch Austrian Open title

KITZBUEHEL, Austria, July 29 (Reuters) - Argentine fifth seed Juan Monaco picked up his third career title on Sunday with a 5-7 6-3 6-4 Austrian Open win over Italian tenth seed Potito Starace.

Monaco, whose three ATP Tour wins have all been won this season and on clay, was forced to come from behind after squandering an early break and two opening set points.

The world number 32 rallied with a late break of Starace’s serve to take the second set.

He then shaded a nervy deciding set, breaking Starace twice either side of being broken once himself.
