METZ, France, Sept. 23 (UPI) -- Top-seeded defending champ Jo-Wilfried Tsonga retained his Moselle Open crown Sunday, rolling past Andreas Seppi in straight sets.

Tsonga posted a 6-1, 6-2 decision in just 52 minutes over the fifth-seeded Italian, improving to 9-5 all-time in finals and 2-0 this season.

The French crowd favorite also won in Doha to start the year.

Seppi, meanwhile, fell to 2-3 in title matches. He also lost the championship match in Eastbourne this year to American Andy Roddick.
