With his third ever win in a challenger tournament, the Genevan was able to celebrate the end of a miserable streak of results.

The result adds 60 points to Rosset's ATP ranking and will enable him to move up a dozen places.

However, Rosset's achievement will probably not be enough to allow him to skip the qualifying round in the Australian Open in Melbourne.

Rosset played against fellow Swiss player George Bastl in the semi-finals, beating him 1:6, 6:3, 6:2.
