Lucas Pouille won his fifth ATP title by beating Richard Gasquet 7-6(2) 6-4 in an all French final at the Open Sud de France in Montpellier on Sunday.

The second seed was solid on serve throughout, not facing a single break point as he prevailed on his fourth match point for his first title of the year.

It was Gasquet's sixth consecutive final in Montpellier, but his second defeat in a row after he was beaten by Germany's Alexander Zverev last year.
