Gael Monfils maintains fine form to win record Open Sud de France title in Montpellier
World number nine Gael Monfils continued his recent renaissance by winning the Open Sud de France on Sunday.
Monfils dispatched Vasek Pospisil 7-5 6-3 to equal Richard Gasquet’s record of three titles in the tournament.
The Frenchman lifted his ninth ATP Tour trophy in a commanding straight-sets victory, defending all four break points he faced in Montpellier.
The 33-year-old is now unbeaten in six matches against Pospisil.
“I am more than happy to win again in France,” said Monfils.
“This is the third time and hopefully I can have some more.
“It has been a great week. I am very pleased about my performance today.
“I think I played very solid again and I was very happy with the way I handled the key moments.”
