NISHI-TOKYO, JAPAN: Former ATP Top 100 ranked Danai Udomchoke claimed his first singles title since August 2012 with victory in Japan.

Thailand’s Davis Cup star took the title after a great week of tennis which saw him reel off five consecutive straight sets wins including in the final, in which the 32-year-old was giving away 10 years to his opponent Shuichi Sekiguchi, to bring an end to his nineteen month barren spell.
