LYON, France, Oct. 28 (UPI) -- France’s Sebastien Grosjean Sunday beat Marc Gicquel in straight sets in an all-French final to take the Lyon Tennis Grand Prix Tennis Tournament at Lyon.

The scores were 7-6 (7-5), 6-4.

The unseeded Grosjean is the sixth Frenchman to win the Lyon title.

He rose to 4-9 in his career in ATP finals.

Grosjean has fallen to No. 81 in the latest world rankings after being 28th when the season started.

"He was too solid, but I am happy with my week,” Gicquel said.

The 30-year-old Gicquel, who also was not seeded, remains without a title in his career.

In 2005, he was a quarterfinalist at this event.
