Marseille - Jo-Wilfried Tsonga claimed a second title in as many weeks and surged into the world top 10 after beating fellow Frenchman Lucas Pouille in the final of the ATP Marseille Open on Sunday.

Second seed Tsonga, currently 11th in the ATP rankings, notched up a 6-4, 6-4 win over fourth seed Pouille to become Marseille champion for a third time.

Tsonga, 31, won in Rotterdam last week for a first title since September 2015 and his Marseille victory was his 14th career ATP title.

"I played great tennis all week, like last week," said the in-form Tsonga.

"I was never in too much danger. I served very well each time it was close."
