Zhuhai (China) (AFP) –


Alex de Minaur of Australia won his third ATP title of a breakout year with victory over France's Adrian Mannarino in the final of the inaugural Zhuhai Championships on Sunday.

The 20-year-old, who defeated former number one Andy Murray in the last 16, won 7-6 (7/4), 6-4 in a little over two hours.

Ranked 31 in the world, De Minaur has been imperious in southern China all week and broke the lower-ranked Frenchman in the 10th game of the second set to seal his victory.

De Minaur adds Zhuhai to titles in Atlanta and Sydney this year.
