Latvian qualifier Ernests Gulbis won his third career ATP title on Sunday by defeating France's Edouard Roger-Vasselin 7-6 (7/3), 6-3 at the Delray Beach International Championships.
Gulbis, ranked four spots below his opponent at 109 in the world, saved a set point in the 10th game of the match with a backhand winner and broke back on his way to taking his second Delray Beach crown in four years.
"I'm really happy," Gulbis said. "I worked hard. These last nine days were tough. I had a match almost every day, except one day it rained, so I'm exhausted now."
