Paris: Russia's Karen Khachanov claimed his second career title on Sunday when he beat France's Lucas Pouille 7-5, 3-6, 7-5 in the final of the Marseille ATP tournament.
The 21-year-old Khachanov, the Dubai-based world number 47, won his maiden title at Chengdu in 2016.
Khachanov hit 16 aces in the one-hour, 49-minute clash to deny Pouille who was the champion in nearby Montpellier just two weeks ago.
"It's the second title in my career, so I am extremely happy," said Khachanov. "I just need to keep working and keep going. I think both of us played a good match, really solid, and just a few points made the difference.
