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.”
