Gael Monfils claimed the Rotterdam Open title on Sunday as he saw off Stan Wawrinka in three sets.

Switzerland’s three-time major winner Wawrinka, playing in his first final in 20 months, responded impressively to falling a set behind before Monfils clinched a 6-3 1-6 6-2 victory after an hour and 44 minutes.

It is the eighth ATP World Tour title of the 32-year-old Frenchman’s career, secured 13 months on from his seventh in Qatar.

Sunday’s match was the first Rotterdam Open final between two unseeded players since Michael Llodra beat Robin Soderling in 2008.
