What Happened at the 2018 Open 13?
In 2018, the competition was won by the rising Russian star Karen Khachanov, who defeated Lucas Pouille in the final in three gruelling sets. That was his first title of the season and he followed that trophy with two more titles over the course of the year.
As for Pouille, it was the second consecutive time in Marseille that he had to settle for the runner-up trophy. He started the event as the third seed and moved on to dominate his half and reach the final. He was definitely relentless, to say the least, given that his matches against Pierre-Hughes Herbert and Filip Krajinovic went to three sets.
