MOSCOW (AP) - Damir Dzumhur recovered from a second-set slip to beat Ricardas Berankis and win the Kremlin Cup on Sunday.

Bosnia’s Dzumhur beat his Lithuanian opponent 6-2, 1-6, 6-4 to win his second career ATP title after victory last month at the St. Petersburg Open.

Dzumhur dominated from the start but slumped in the second set even though Berankis made just 31 percent of his first serves in that set.

The decider was even until Dzumhur broke for a 5-4 lead and closed out the match.

Berankis has lost both of his career finals.
