Frenchman Lucas Pouille came from a set down and needed a second set tie-break to beat Spain's Feliciano Lopez 4-6, 7-6 (7/5), 6-4, to claim the grass-court title at Stuttgart yesterday.

"That's my first title on grass," said the 23-year-old, who has now won three ATP Tour titles and sits 16th in the world rankings. "I had a tight match in the first round and from there I took it one match at a time," he added.
