Britain's Colin Fleming claimed his second tour title of the year, partnering Indian Rohan Bopanna to victory at the ATP Marseille Open.

The second seeded Indo-British pair edged past the Pakistani duo and top seeds Aisam-Ul-Haq Qureshi and Jean-Julien Rojer in straight sets 6-4 7-6 (7-3) at the hard court event.

Scotsman Fleming was partnering Bopanna for the first time in the absence of regular partner Ross Hutchins, who is recovering after being diagnosed with cancer last year.

They saved all four break-points they faced in the match before coming through comfortably in a second set tie-breaker.

It was 28-year-old's Fleming's seventh ATP doubles title while Bopanna claimed his eighth doubles crown.
