Richard Gasquet did his chances of qualifying for this season's ATP World Tour Finals no harm at all by winning the Kremlin Cup.

The Frenchman has moved above fellow countryman Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the Race to London and is now ninth in the standings, with that spot set to qualify for the season-finale at The O2 following Andy Murray's withdrawal.

Gasquet defeated Mikhail Kukushkin in the final in Moscow after coming from a set down, taking his third ATP title of the year with a 4-6 6-4 6-4 victory.

Grigor Dimitrov meanwhile won his maiden ATP title after beating David Ferrer 2-6 6-3 6-4 at the Stockholm Open.

After battling from a set down against Benoit Paire in the semi-finals, once again Dimitrov had to come from behind, and the Bulgarian did so with a fine display to shock the Spaniard and lift his first title on the circuit.

Tommy Haas was also a champion on Sunday as the veteran German beat Robin Haase 6-3 4-6 6-4 to win the Erste Bank Open in Austria.
