Guillermo Garcia-Lopez won his fifth title at the ATP level after beating Jiri Vesely (Czech Republic) with 7:6 (5), 7:6 (11) in the final of the tournament BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy in Bucharest.
The 31 years old Spaniard became the first player over 30 years, who won the title in Bucharest from 2010 onwards, when it seemed Juan Ignacio Chela. In addition, he became the first Spaniard from 2009 onwards, winning a trophy at the level ATP 250. The last it was done from Albert Montanes.
The way of Garcia-Lopez went through to the title wins over the qualifier Lorenzo Giustino, Marcos Baghdatis, Lukas Rosol and Gael Monfils.
Jiri Vesely has something to regret, because at the end of the first set sampled for 6: 5, then had lead 40:15 in his service. Both set-balls however, were omitted from Vesely then in the tiebreak Garcia-Lopez won.
Both exchanged a breakthrough at the beginning of the second set and then easily won their submissions. Deservedly so again reached to the tiebreak, in which Garcia-Lopez won with 13:11 points in his sixth match ball. Vesely missed two more set balls.
The world No45 ensured 250 ranking points and a check for EUR 80,000, while Vesely will have to be content with 150 points and EUR 43 100 from the prize money.
For the 21 years old Czech, it was the first final on clay in his career. Earlier in the season he won his first title after he triumphed in Auckland (at the final defeat Manarino).
