High flying Frenchman Gael Monfils won his third title in Montpellier beating Vasek Pospisil 7-5, 6-3. The wildcard didn’t drop a set in his last three matches and only dropped serve once in that stretch.
“I am more than happy to win again in France,” said Monfils who is now 19-4 at the event. “This is the third time and hopefully I can have some more.”
Monfils now has nine career titles and he improves to 6-0 against Pospisil.
“It has been a great week. I am very pleased about my performance today,” said Monfils. “I think I played very solid again and I was very happy with the way I handled the key moments.”
Pospisil was appearing in just his second career ATP final after finishing runner-up at 2014 Washington.
“It was an incredible week,” said the 29-year-old Pospisil. “I had great wins and I feel like I am definitely improving week-by-week. I will try to rest now, take a couple of days easy and get ready for the next event.”
The 132rd-ranked Pospisil upset Denis Shapovalov, Richard Gasquet and David Goffin on his road to the final.
