Borna Coric of Croatia stunned Swiss legend Roger Federer in the final 7-6 (6), 3-6, 6-2 to win the Gerry Weber Open title on Sunday.

"I am just really surprised. I had not even dreamed of this," said Coric.

Coric, who also beat second seed Alexander Zverev of Germany in the first round, snapped Federer's 20-match winning streak on grass after two hours and six minutes, hitting 11 aces and saving three of four break points en route to his second tour-level title.

"I actually thought I played maybe my best match of the week today. It just didn't go my way. So it's a bit unfortunate there. But I'm definitely going to leave with my head high, thinking it's been a good run," said Federer.
