Viktor Troicki defeated a 6-2, 6-3 Mikhail Kukushkin to win the Apia International Sydney 2015 title.
He won $80,000 and 250 ATP Rankings points and also fired 13 aces and won 73 per cent of his service points, breaking Kukushkin four times from five opportunities.
"There are a lot of emotions actually," said Troicki. "It's been a tough road, a lot of work, and it paid off with a nice title. If I look back to where I was five, six months ago, it's amazing to have a title already. So it's a really nice moment for me and for all my team. It's very emotional.
"I've got to say I have been working harder than ever probably, and I feel very, very fit," added the Serb. "I didn't have any problems. I had eight matches here and luckily I haven't had problems. I feel very fresh again. I feel I can go again good on Monday. Definitely I was working hard and that's paying off. I have inside myself trust in my body, and I feel I can do a lot of things."
