Top-seeded Serb Janko Tipsarevic won the Stuttgart claycourt title on Sunday, a victory which allowed his wife to drive away with a luxury Mercedes.

World number eight Tipsarevic won his third career title by beating Argentine second seed Juan Monaco 6-4, 5-7, 6-3.

It was the 28-year-old’s first trophy of the year and adds to previous titles in Moscow and Kuala Lumpur in 2011.

Tipsarevic also won a top of the range Mercedes-Benz.

“I don’t want to call it a deal, but I have pretty solid car at home, so I don’t need it,” said Tipsarevic.

“But my wife (Biljana) and I had our anniversary a couple of days back. She also had her birthday. So I promised her the car, if I won the tournament. The points go to me.”
