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.
