STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Oct. 21 (UPI) -- Second-seeded Tomas Berdych came from behind Sunday, rallying to past top-seeded Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to claim the Stockholm Open.

Berdych improved to 2-2 in finals this year with his 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 triumph over Tsonga.

The Czech -- who also defeated Gael Monfils in February's Montpellier event -- reached 8-8 all-time in title matches with Sunday's victory.

Tsonga, meanwhile, was trying for his third title of 2012 after posting earlier triumphs in Doha and Metz.

The Frenchman fell to 3-1 in career against Berdych.
