OSTRAVA, May 1, 2016

Constant Lestienne celebrated his first title on the ATP Challenger Tour, winning Sunday’s final of the €42,500 Prosperita Open in Ostrava.

The world number 276 from France beat Czech teenager Zdenek Kolar, who lifted his first ITF Pro Circuit title only seven weeks ago in Porec, winning 6-7, 6-1, 6-2.

Lestienne, who also claimed one Future crown in Bressuire earlier this season, saved nine of the 13 break points he faced and converted eight of his own to seal victory in one hour and 52 minutes.

Lestienne takes away €6,150 in prize money as well as 90 ATP ranking points.
