Ernests Gulbis Remains Perfect in Finals with Nice Victory

 

Ernests Gulbis by Maria Noble

(May 24, 2014) Ernests Gulbis his perfect record in ATP World Tour finals perfect at 6-0 as he defeated Federico Delbonis to win 6-1, 7-6 (5) the Open de Nice.

“I am really happy to win here, the Latvian said. “My next goal is to be Top 10, even Top 8. I think if I play well in the Grand Slams, I have a good chance. It’s tough to kick out somebody from the top as there are a lot of good players, but I am working on it.

“I really like the South of France. I think I will be coming here on vacation and I think you are going to see me a lot around this area.”

“He played well,” said the losing finalist Delbonis. “I didn’t start the best way and he broke me twice. In the second set, I gave my best [and] it was more equal. I had my chances, but [I] couldn’t take them because he served well. I’m happy for this week and although this match wasn’t the best, I’m happy for playing it.”

Both men will be making their way to Paris to play the French Open which begins on Sunday, Gulbis will play Lukasz Kubot in the first round, while Delbonis faces Dusan Lajovic.
