GSTAAD, Switzerland, July 15 (UPI) -- Fifth-seeded Paul-Henri Mathieu of France Sunday beat Andreas Seppi of Italy in the final of the Swiss Open Gstaad.

Mathieu -- ranked 28th in the world -- dropped the first set, but came back to beat the unseeded Seppi, 6-7 (1-7), 6-4, 7-5. Mathieu has beaten the 111th-ranked Seppi three times in three lifetime meetings between the two.

"Even if I was very tired I was fighting until the end and it's a great feeling to win this tournament," said Mathieu.

Seppi was playing in his first final.

"At the end both of us could have won and I got pretty close," said Seppi. "It is still a great week for me reaching my first final here and I've been playing very well."

Mathieu earned $80,940 for the win.
