The Swedish-South African pairing, who were seeded second, narrowly lost in the final of the ATP 250 Open Sud de France in Montpellier last week but today went one better, winning the match in just over an hour.
Top seeds Delgado and Skupski served impressively in the first set which they took 6-4 with a single break.
But they could maintain the level under increasing pressure from their in-form opponents who bounced back to take the second set 6-2, with two breaks and dropping only four points on serve.
Brunstrom and Klassen carried their form and momentum into the Champion’s Tie-break, winning it 10-3 and with it the Challenger tour Open BNP Paribas title.
Disappointing end to a good week. Went down 3-6 6-2 10-3. Heading to Marseille ATP 250 tonight for our final tournament together.
Murray and Peers face a tough first round tie against the team who beat Delgado and Skupski for the title in Quimper, Brunstrom and Klaasen.
