(Associated Press) - January 10, 2016 - 11:19pm

CHENNAI, India — Stan Wawrinka won his fourth title at the Chennai Open on Sunday (early Monday morning in Manila)  with a 6-3, 7-5 win over upcoming Borna Coric of Croatia.

Fifteen aces and trademark backhand shots helped the top-seeded Swiss dominate against 19-year-old Coric, the youngest player in the world's top 50 at No. 44.

It was the fourth title in five finals for 30-year-old Wawrinka, who had finished runner-up in 2010 and won his first title in 2011 at the hard court venue. He also won in 2014 and 2015.

Wawrinka saved all five break points even as Coric, playing his maiden ATP final, failed to put up the kind of fight that saw him win three-setters in four previous matches.
