Oeiras, Portugal: Juan del Potro won his second consecutive Estoril Open title by beating Richard Gasquet in straight sets on Sunday. The top-seeded Del Potro used his strong serve to win 6-4, 6-2 on the outdoor clay court in 1 hour, 27 minutes.
It was the 12th-ranked Argentine's 11th career title and second this year.
"I felt it was my best match of the week," Del Potro said. "I felt really confident on my forehand and I grew in confidence every game."
The second-seeded Gasquet, who also lost the final here in 2007 to current top-ranked Novak Djokovic, dropped service games early on in both sets.
Del Potro didn't give up a break chance in the match while hitting six aces on the way to improving his head-to-head record with his French opponent to 4-1.
"He's very tall and has a good second serve and was hitting the ball very well," Gasquet said. "He was the better player today."
