Default Delray Beach Final: Gulbis def. Roger-Vasselin 7-6(3), 6-3 to claim 3rd career title

GOATs gonna GOAT.

ERV served for the 1st set at 5*-4 and then once again, Gulbis turned up his game and didn't allow him to take it.

It was quite a contentious final. Gulbis seemed to be quite annoyed at ERV for some reason. It was though to be because ERV didn't apologize for a lucky, wind-assisted shot. ERV benefited from the wind a lot and it probably frustrated Gulbis quite a bit.

Gulbis' forehand, despite his new found desire, has taken several steps backwards. I have a feeling this will cost him in future.

Would sadly have to agree.

For now Gulbis deserves a lot of credit for a seemingly huge attitude change.

Yup, all it takes is to pound his FH for an opening and then run away with the point from there. Don't understand why his opponents are failing to do that.

ERV had set point. Title after that dramatic victory over Querrey and Haas must feel great. I hope he will get WC for Miami.

The legend of Gulbis continues. Has he now become what he mocks? A top 100 ATP player that actually tries from tournament to tournament?

He is so Safinesque in interviews. Even his voice is similar.
