'S-HERTOGENBOSCH (Netherlands) (AFP) - Nicolas Mahut warmed up for Wimbledon by winning his third 's-Hertogenbosch tennis title after dominating a rain-delayed final on Monday.

After taking the opening set 6-4 against Luxembourg's Gilles Muller on the Dutch grass court on Sunday, the Frenchman wrapped up victory by taking the second set by the same scoreline.

It was his third title win in 's-Hertogenbosch, the 34-year-old having previously won the Dutch event in 2013 and 2015. It was his fourth career title, having also won on grass in Newport, Rhode Island in 2013.
