Wawrinka with his Tokyo title.

Top seed Stan Wawrinka made short work of Benoit Paire to lift the Rakuten Japan Open title in Tokyo with a straight sets win.

The Swiss player took just over an hour to defeat his unseeded opponent 6-2 6-4, winning all four of his break points to ease his way to a comfortable victory.

Paire had upset home player Kei Nishikori in the semi-final but was no match for double Grand Slam title winner Wawrinka in the final.

Wawrinka, who won the 2014 Australian Open and the the French Open earlier this year, won his fourth ATP title of 2015 with victory in Japan and lies fourth in the world rankings.

Paire, who was bidding for his second victory against Wawrinka, had his serve broken three times in the opening set, managing to break back once.

One break of serve was enough for Wawrinka to take victory in the second set and wrap up the title.
