India's Mahesh Mangaonkar defeated Spain's Bernat Jaume, the third seed, in the final to clinch the Sekisui Open title for the second time in his career in Kriens, Switzerland, late on Saturday.

This was Mahesh's eighth PSA title.

After losing a close first game, Jaume grabbed the second. But thereafter, Mahesh steadied himself to work his way to glory. He won 11-9, 3-11, 11-5, 11-5. It took him to 48 minutes to finish the job.

Mahesh had defeated Daniel Mekbib of Czech Republic on Friday to qualify for the final.

He had won the corresponding title for the first time in 2016.
