Cilic, who won last week in Croatia, is 10-9 in finals.

Berdych fired off nine aces against no double faults in winning more than three-quarters of the points on serve against Cilic. He saved all three of the break points he faced, all of which came in the first set.

Cilic won a respectable 59 percent to the points when serving but Berdych cashed in one of his two first-set break chances and both of his opportunities in the second.

Berdych collected more than $450,000 along with the title, pushing his career winnings past the $17 million mark. Cilic's second-place check is worth about $204,000. He's won about $6.7 in his career.
