Tomokazu Harimoto defeated China’s Zhao Zihao in the men’s final of the Bulgaria Open on Sunday, claiming his first title on the ITTF World Tour this season.

After losing a close exchange in the fifth game, the top-seeded Harimoto came back strong and wrapped up the contest with his aggressive “chiquita” backhand serve return to beat Zhao 11-6, 12-14, 11-5, 13-11, 13-15, 11-4.
