CHRIS DITTMAR yesterday won his first major title for six months when he beat his Australian compatriot, Rodney Martin, 7-15, 15-7, 15-9, 17-16 in the final of the French Open at Tours.

It was a typically fighting performance by the 29-year-old world No 2 from Adelaide, whose last success was in the European Open final in Kiel, Germany, against the same opponent. It was also a timely result before the British Open, which starts on Wednesday.

Dittmar was prepared to bide his time after Martin made a bright start, but his more dogged approach gradually took control. 'It's nice to win again and it does my confidence a power of good,' Dittmar said.
