Chennai: Stanislas Wawrinka played like a champion and true to his top billing while outclassing seventh seeded Frenchman Eduard Roger-Vasselin 7-5, 6-2, in the singles final of the Aircel Chennai Open,here Sunday.

Wawrinka, the 28-year old Swiss and ranked No.8, picked up $72,490 and 250 ATP Tour points while Roger-Vasselin went home richer by $38,180 and 150 points on conclusion of the one hour, 35-minute final.

Frederik Nielsen (Denmark) and Johan Brurnstrom (Sweden) won the doubles title defeating Croatian pair of Marin Draganja and Mate Pavic 6-2, 4-6 (10-7) in the final.

In celebrating his 500th Tour singles match with his 302nd win and fifth title, Wawrinka underlined his growing stature that saw him break into top 10 for the first time last year as he weaved his one-handed magic to force the Frenchman into errors while himself blasting a stream of breathtaking winners.
