Fernando Verdasco has won his first ATP trophy in two years at the Nastase Tiriac Trophy in Romania.
The Spaniard eased to a 6-3, 6-2 victory over first-time finalist Lucas Pouille in Bucharest.
Verdasco's last ATP trophy came in April 2014 at the US Men's Clay Court Championship in Houston.
After winning the first set, Verdasco broke Pouille in the first game of the second and went on to comfortably see off the 22-year-old Frenchman.
After slumping to a world ranking of 60, the long-awaited victory was Verdasco's seventh top-level tour title of his career.The final was originally scheduled for Sunday but was carried over to Monday due to heavy rain.
