MARSEILLE, France (AP) Big-serving Karen Khachanov secured the second ATP title of his career after beating Lucas Pouille 7-5, 3-6, 7-5 in the Open 13 final on Sunday.

The ninth-seeded Russian had 16 aces in a closely fought contest, winning on his second match point when the third-seeded Frenchman hit a forehand into the net from the back of the court. The pair hugged at the net in a show of sportsmanship.

"I hope there are many more finals between us in the future," Khachanov said to Pouille. "I felt I was playing good here from the first day. It's nice to play on a full court in the final, and I hope to come back next year."
