Third tennis victory of the year

Sweden's top tennis player has won the Marseille ATP tournament, his second title in the space of a week.

Robin Söderling beat Marin Cilic from Croatia in three sets, after having trouble in the first set and losing it 6-7. But he then broke Cilic's serve twice in the second set, taking it 6-3, and also the last set 6-3.

Speaking on Swedish Radio Sport Mats Strandberg says that Söderling has clearly raised his game, and that during the match Söderling was clearly mentally stronger.

The victory at Marseille is Söderling's third title of 2011 - having triumphed at Brisbane in early January.
