Guillermo Garcia-Lopez believes hard work earns rewards

Guillermo Garcia-Lopez got past a resilient Jiri Vesely 7-6(5), 7-6(11) in the final of the Bucharest Open and thus lifting his 5th ATP title of his career. The Spaniard made history along the way as he became the first player above the age of 30 to lift the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy since 2010.

“I feel like I'm doing the right things to improve my game and my ranking," Garcia-Lopez said. "When you work hard, there is always a reward, not only in tennis, but in life in general.” It took the Spaniard 2 hours and 14 minutes to finish things up in the final of Sunday and probably had to overcome a lot of nerves as he made sure to convert the 6th of match point that fell his way.

“It was complicated for me to close the match,” said Garcia-Lopez. “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." Also Read: Match Report Guillermo Gracia Lopez, the conqueror of Bucharest!
