PARIS (Reuters) - Australian Nick Kyrgios claimed his maiden ATP title when he beat Croatian fourth seed Marin CIlic 6-2 7-6(3) to win the Marseille Open on Sunday. Despite a mediocre first serve percentage, the unseeded Kyrgios did not face a break point in the opening set, while former U.S. Open champion Cilic dropped his serve twice.

World number 41 Kyrgios, playing his second ATP final after a runner-up finish in Estoril last year, sent down 17 aces as he completed victory over Cilic.
