Tokyo: Underdog Wesley Moodie stormed back from the brink of defeat to beat Mario Ancic of Croatia for his first career title at the Japan Open tennis tournament on Sunday.

The unseeded South African, who saved four match points to win the semifinals on Saturday, staved off another two in the second-set tie-breaker before scoring a stunning 1-6, 7-6 (9/7), 6-4 victory.

"It feels great to win my first title, especially being match points down in the semis and the finals. I was fortunate to come back and playing well. It's an amazing feeling," said Moodie.

The women's singles final was won by Nicole Vaidisova of the Czech Republic after Tatiana Golovin of France abandoned it due to a left foot injury at 7-6 (7/4), 3-2 and 30-15.
