Spain's Roberto Bautista Agut claimed his second title of the season with victory over second seed Lucas Pouille in the final of the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships.
Bautista Agut won 6-3 6-4 in a hard-fought contest lasting an hour and 21 minutes to capture his first ATP World Tour 500 event, denying Pouille a place in the world's top 10 for the first time in the process.
A solitary break of serve was enough to give Bautista Agut the opening set and the third seed fought back from 3-1 down in the second to secure the winner's cheque for £410,000.
Bautista Agut will climb to 16th in the world when the rankings are updated on Monday, with Pouille moving to a career-best 12th.
Meanwhile, Juan Martin del Potro won his first ATP 500 title since 2013 at the Mexico Open in Acapulco.
The Argentinian took one hour and 40 minutes to topple his South African opponent Kevin Anderson 6-4 6-4.
Both players fought hard, with just two breaks of serve in the entire match - both going in del Potro's favour.
At the Brasil Open in Sao Paulo, Chile's Nicolas Jarry will face Italy's Fabio Fognini in Sunday's final.
Jarry - who has survived several scares at the tournament this week - rallied from a set down to win 6-7 (5/7) 6-4 6-4 against Horacio Zeballos.
Veteran Fognini, who has not dropped a single set all week, clinched his spot in his 15th ATP World Tour final by beating three-time defending champion Pablo Cuevas 6-4 6-2.
Fognini needed just one hour and 11 minutes on court to emerge victorious.
