Russia's Yuri Schukin lifted the men's singles title in the Belgaum Open ATP Challenger on Sunday.

In the final between the two unseeded players, Schukin easily defeated Germany's Dieter Kindlmann 6-3, 6-2 in 64 minutes.

The Russian took home the winner's prize of US$ 3,600. The doubles crown was claimed by the Slovakian pair of Branislav Sekac and Michal Mertinak after a tough battle against the Indian duo of Vishal Uppal and Mustafa Ghouse. The pair won 7-6(7-3), 7-6(7-2).

Indian tennis sensation Leander Paes handed over the prizes to the winners.
