Mónaco loses out in Swiss Open final

Argentine tennis star Juan Mónaco fell just short in his bid to win the Swiss Open in Gstaad, as 'Pico' went down in two sets to Spain's Pablo Andújar to lose in the tournament's final today.

The 28-year-old Andújar triumped 6-3, 7-5 in one hour and 32 minutes of play to win the third title of his career. The Valencia native had previously tasted glory in consecutive years in Casablanca, winning in 2011 and 2012.

Andújar took control in the first set by winning three straights, taking the advantage at 3-3 against his Argentine opponent. Mónaco had the chance to level in the eighth game, throwing away a 15-40 lead to waste two break points before the Spaniard powered through.

'Pico' also squandered a dominant position in the second set. Andújar fought back from 4-1 down to finish the match with four games won in a row, eventually taking the decisive set 7-5 to crown himself champion.
