Tomas Berdych won his first title of the season with victory over Richard Gasquet at the Shenzhen Open in China.

The Czech secured his 13th ATP title, and his second Shenzhen title, with a 7-6 (7-5) 6-7 (2-7) 6-3 victory over third seed Gasquet.

Berdych, who missed the US Open with appendicitis, is ninth in the race to qualify for the ATP World Tour Finals.

"Five weeks ago I was in hospital, now I'm sitting here with the trophy," he said.

The win was Berdych's first ATP World Tour title since the Stockholm Open in October 2015.

The 31-year-old is aiming to appear at his seventh consecutive World Tour final but will need to overtake Rafael Nadal, who currently holds the final qualifying place.
