Lucas Pouille claims fifth ATP title with Open Sud de France win
Lucas Pouille claimed a straight sets win over Richard Gasquet to win the Open Sud de France.
The Frenchman eased passed his compatriot 7-6 (7-2), 6-3 in one hour and 27 minutes in Montpellier on Sunday to secure his fifth ATP singles title.
The victory was set up by his strong serve as he didn’t face any break points as he claimed his fourth consecutive win over Gasquet, who won the Open Sud de France in 2013, 2015 and 2016.
Gasquet had to save three break points in the opening set as he forced a tie-breaker, but Pouille eventually took a one-set lead.
