Crowned in Kazakhstan by beating Sebastian Korda in the final (4-6, 6-3, 6-2), Adrian Mannarino now has four titles to his credit.

The French Adrian Mannarino won the ATP 250 tournament in Astana on Tuesday by dominating the American Sebastian Korda (4-6, 6-3, 6-2), the fourth title of his career, which will allow him to make a leap in the world rankings.

With this coronation, the French number one should rise to 23rd place, only one place from his best ranking, 22nd, five years ago.

Tuesday’s final, however, got off to a bad start for Mannarino who, after a tense first half hour, lost his service game and saw Sebastian Korda break away at 5-4 before concluding the first set with his throw in (6-4 ).

Succeeds Djokovic

But that was without counting on the left-hander, solid in the baseline and agile on the fly, who was able to turn the tide and win five consecutive games, while trailing 3-1, to win the second set (6-3).

More aggressive, the Frenchman then took off in the last set with two breaks to win his second title of the year, after that on grass in Newport in July.

Mannarino succeeds the Serbian Novak Djokovic, winner last year of the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, on the list of winners of the Astana tournament.
