Hamburg, Germany (Sports Network) - Fabio Fognini won his second ATP World Tour title in as many weeks with Sunday's victory at the German Open Tennis Championships.

The 12th-seeded Fognini rallied past Argentinian qualifier Federico Delbonis by a 4-6, 7-6 (10-8), 6-2 margin in the final.

Fognini, who saved three match points in the second set tiebreak, became the first Italian to win in Hamburg.

The 26-year-old Fognini claimed his maiden ATP championship in Stuttgart last week and is riding a 10-match winning streak.

Playing in his first career final, Delbonis was trying to become the seventh first-time winner on the ATP World Tour this year after stunning four-time champion Roger Federer in Saturday's semifinals.
