The Asian Age - - Sport -

Chen­nai: France’s Corentin Moutet, the sec­ond- seed, beat An­drew Har­ris of Aus­tralia 6- 3, 6- 3 in the sin­gles fi­nal on Sun­day to win the ti­tle in Chen­nai Open ATP Chal­lenger ten­nis tour­na­ment here. The French­man played con­fi­dently to dash the hopes of Har­ris, the con­queror of topseeded Pra­j­nesh Gunneswaran on Satur­day. The 19- year old left- han­der dis­played a range of ex­quis­ite shots, tremen­dous agility and ex­em­plary court- craft in sub­du­ing Har­ris, a for­mer ju­nior dou­bles cham­pion at the French Open and Wim­ble­don. Har­ris com­ing into the fi­nal on the back of some tough matches, strug­gled to find his form par­tic­u­larly on his ground strokes. It was the sec­ond Chal­lenger ti­tle for Moutet, who re­ceived $ 7,200 and 80 ATP points, while An­drew re­ceived $ 4,240 and 48 ATP points.
