Richard Gasquet defeated fellow Frenchman Gilles Simon 6-2, 6-1 to capture the Thailand on Sunday. Gasquet broke a two-year title drought by winning his 7th career ATP tournament. His last tournament victory came in May 2010 at the Open de Nice Côte d’Azur.

“I played against a French player who is also my friend so of course it a little bit strange but for me it’s a title and I’ve had some tough matches this week so I’m very happy to win,” said Gasquet.

“The people here are very nice, the crowd was very nice. The night I played against (Grigor) Dimitrov it was late, but the people stayed and cheered for me so it’s more reason for me to come back next year and defend my title.”

Gasquet extended his perfect record against Simon to 6-0

“I was playing some of the best tennis I ever played yesterday (against Janko Tipsarevic) and today I just couldn’t play at all,” Simon said. “Thierry (Tulasne) was here to watch, but it was our last week together so I really wanted to win.”
