Zverev downs Gasquet for Montpellier title

"I'm very happy to win my first title of the year", said Zverev.

Frenchman Richard Gasquet remains on course for a third straight title at the Open Sud de France, where he will face German teen Alexander Zverev in the final.

Next up for Gasquet is unseeded Benoit Paire, who won his opening game before Germany's Dustin Brown was forced to retire from the match because of a lower-back injury. This included their rakings with Zverev (World No. 21) ranked a spot higher than Gasquet (World No. 22).

After exchanging early breaks of serve, Dimitrov, who defeated Kei Nishikori last month to win the Brisbane International, made the all-important breakthrough in game 12 on his way to the first set. Gasquet tried to close the gap but couldn't hold off Zverev eventually taking the tiebreak 7-6 (4). I had a bad start, he quickly broke me at the beginning of the match.

Zverev however ended up taking his shots inside the baseline as Gasquet receeded further back behind the baseline in defensive mode. He served ten aces to Goffin's two in the final, and converted on five of his seven break points. He squandered all three with several loose errors but gained a fourth match point thanks to an ace.

The Frenchman came out on top in a tie-break after a fiercely contested and break-less first set and then broke Zverev's serve in the very first game of the second.
