(April 26, 2015) World No. 45 Guillermo Garcia-Lopez took home his fifth career ATP trophy by taking the Nastase Tiriac Trophy final, defeating Jiri Vesely 7-6 (5), 7-6 (11). The Spaniard needed six match points to claim the title on Sunday.
The fifth seed, who is 31-years-old, became the first player over 30 to win the Bucharest title since 2010 when Juan Ignacio Chela did it at 30 years, 7 months.
Garcia-Lopez said; “It was complicated for me to close the match. I was feeling nervous, a lot of things crossing my mind, but in the end I was happy to win. It is the first time in my career that I’ve won two titles in a year.
“I feel like I’m doing the right things to improve my game and my ranking. When you work hard, there is always a reward, not only in tennis, but in life in general.”
“I’m at the beginning of my career and a success here in Bucharest would have meant more for me, but that’s life,” said “the runner-up. I will clearly be here next year and hopefully I will have better luck then.”
