Gulbis is the champ
The final of the Open 13 between Jo-Wilfreid Tsonga, title holder and Ernests Gulbis was presented as a battle of heavy hitters. And the match certainly lived up to it's expectations.
From the start both players served up a storm, but it was always Gulbis who was in front and who had the opportunities. He was, however unable to convert and had to wait until the tie-breaker in order to make the difference.
In the second, Tsonga was pushed on all of his service games and especially in the second one when the Frenchman lost his serve. Unbreakable Gulbis was not about to let the opportunity go by. The break advantage ended up being enough for the Latvian to seal the deal in straight sets and become the new king of Marseille. Final score 7-6 6-4
