Andujar captures Gstaad title|
Gstaad, Switzerland (SportsNetwork.com) - Spain's Pablo Andujar captured his
third ATP title with a 6-3, 7-5 triumph over Juan Monaco of Argentina at the
Swiss Open Sunday.
Ranked 71st in the world, the 28-year-old Andujar improved to 3-3 in career
finals by winning this clay-court event. His other championships came in
Casablanca in 2011 and 2012.
"I knew it was going to be a fight, physically. The first set was decided on
two points," Andujar said. "He got the advantage in the second set, but I
played aggressively in the important and final points. I have worked a lot and
it is amazing to win a trophy. I finished with an ace, the only ace I hit the
Spaniards have won the Gstaad crown 13 times since 1990.
The 30-year-old Monaco was playing in his first final since losing at
Kitzbuhel in July last year. He has won seven of his eight career titles on
clay. Monaco dropped to an 8-11 record in championship matches.
"I would like to congratulate Pablo. I think he had an amazing run this week,"
Monaco said. "He won a couple of good matches and played well to win today."
