De Bakker saved 3 match points (1 on Hanescu's serve). Hanescu was 4/2 40/0* up in the decider.
He lost it from 5/3 up.
Once a choker, always a choker I guess.
De Bakker is back to TOP 200.

Hanescu is still choking :facepalm:

such a shame. Had top 15 talent and choked it away, and now the shadow-of-himself hanescu who should still be top 70 puts in losses like this

great week for thiemo who looks like he is truly on his way back up
as for victor..well not a great end but he's had the best 2 weeks he's had all year in winning a final and making another one

Thiemo :worship: Quick progress.

Good result :). De Bakker needed this so he can get back in top 200, he totally deserves it.
As for Victor, this is his third final in a row. I would say that's not bad :). He said that he will take two weeks off after Bercuit, which I think is a pretty stupid decision, if he could've kept this form up he would've easily got a spot in the US Open main draw.

Thiemo benefits from Hanescu's choking, unexpected.
Still think he is an overrated guy, but top 100 should be his level.
More talented player lost imo

The real Baker will rise.

De Bakker is top 50 material. Have no idea why he dropped down so suddenly last year. Good for him to win a title now.

Outchoking a Dutchman.
Well done Hanescu, well done.
