Youzhny Gstaad Trophy (July 28, 2013) -- Mikhail Youzhny became the first Russian in 18 years to win the Credit Agricole Suisse Open Gstaad title on Sunday.

Facing Robin Haase in the finals, Youzhny used his 4-0 lifetime record against Haase to his advantage. He never faced a break point against him while able to break Haase's serve one time in each set.

Youzhny went on to win the title 6-3, 6-4 in 68 minutes. Gstaad is the Russian's ninth career ATP title and his first this season.

In the trophy ceremony, the absence of top seed Roger Federer was acknowledged by both men. Youzhny said in a joking moment he was thankful that Federer lost in the second round while Haase asked for a goat in reference to Federer receiving a cow on court earlier in the week.

Youzhny's last title was in 2012 at Zagreb. The last Russian to win Gsstaad was Yevgeny Kafelnikov back in 1995.

The doubles title was won by Jamie Murray and John Peers over Pablo Andujar and Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-3, 6-4.
