Jamie murray takes doubles crown

Great Britain's Jamie Murray and his Australian partner John Peers won their fourth doubles title in just over a year with victory at the BMW Open in Munich.

The pair beat the British duo of Colin Fleming and Ross Hutchins, in their first ATP World Tour final since resuming their partnership following Hutchins' recovery from cancer, 6-4 6-2.

In the singles world number 111 Martin Klizan surprised Italy's Fabio Fognini, ranked 96 places higher, to secure his second tour title.

Slovakian Klizan won 2-6 6-1 6-2 in 89 minutes battle against a player he also beat in 2012 to win his first trophy.

He became the first qualifier to lift an ATP World Tour trophy since last summer when Nicolas Mahut won at the Topshelf Open in 's-Hertogenbosch, and the first player outside the world's 100 to win since 155th-ranked Ivo Karlovic triumphed at Bogota last July.
