Goffin downs Mannarino to win Japan Open title

Goffin downs Mannarino to win Japan Open title

Undated, Oct 8 (REUTERS) Fourth-seeded Belgian David Goffin beat Frenchman Adrian Mannarino 6-3 7-5 in the Japan Open final in Tokyo on Sunday to win his second title in as many weeks and first ATP 500 trophy. Goffin, who lost to Nick Kyrgios in last year's final, extended his winning streak to nine matches to rise to number eight in the Race to London rankings, boosting his chances of playing in the season-ending tournament. The 26-year-old was dominant from the start and broke Mannarino to take a 3-1 lead in the opener and maintained the one-break advantage to claim the set, winning 21 of 25 points on his own serve. World number 31 Mannarino rallied in the second and broke Goffin to take a 4-2 lead but the in-form Belgian responded by breaking the Frenchman immediately and once more in the 11th game as he charged to victory. The win in Tokyo was Goffin's fourth career title and second of the season after his ATP 250 Shenzhen Open triumph last Sunday. The world number 11 will next travel to China to play in the Shanghai Masters. REUTERS SDR 1519
