's-Hertogenbosch - Frenchman Richard Gasquet won his first ATP title since October 2016 by downing compatriot Jeremy Chardy in the final of the grass-court event in 's-Hertogenbosch on Sunday.

The second seed, who turns 32 on Monday and is ranked 30th in the world, battled past Chardy 6-3, 7-6 (7/5) in the Netherlands to claim the 15th title of his career.

Gasquet, a three-time Grand Slam semi-finalist, last won a tournament in Antwerp 20 months ago, but has shown signs of a return to form in recent months and lost to Lucas Pouille in the Montpellier final earlier this year.
