atpworltour.com: February 8, 2015 Montpellier, France – Fourth seed Richard Gasquet captured his second Open Sud de France title on Sunday in Montpellier. The Frenchman now has a 13-3 record at this ATP World Tour 250 indoor hard-court tournament, having previously lifted the trophy in 2013 (d. Paire). He finished runner-up to Gael Monfils in last year’s final, but avenged that loss with victory over his countryman in Saturday’s semi-finals.

 

Gasquet was crowned champion when Jerzy Janowicz was forced to retire ill just three games into the final. The fourth seed had won 14 straight points to open up a 3-0, 30/0 lead before Janowicz conceded.

 

"I knew he was sick when we were warming up. I saw very quickly at the beginning of the match that he couldn’t play at all," said Gasquet. "Anything can happen, so even though I knew he was sick, I stayed focused. I had a great week, with solid matches. It’s good for the rest of the season. I felt that I played well this week. I feel 100 per cent and ready for the season.”

 

Former World No. 7 Gasquet lifted his 11th ATP World Tour trophy and first since 2013, when he won three titles for the second time in his career (also 2006) with victories at Doha, Montpellier and Moscow. He has a 10-12 record in finals.

atpworldtour.com: February 8, 2015 Quito, Ecudaor - Victor Estrella Burgos, 34, proved that persistence pays on Sunday at the Ecuador Open Quito, becoming the oldest first-time ATP World Tour titlist in Open Era history with his 6-2, 6-7(5), 7-6(5) win over top seed Feliciano Lopez.

 

He also reached his first ATP World Tour doubles final in Quito, falling with partner Joao Souza to the German team of Alexander Satschko and Gero Kretschmer. Seeded eighth, Estrella Burgos upset fourth seed Martin Klizan and sixth-seeded Thomaz Bellucci in addition to Lopez en route to his maiden title. The World No. 73 is the second player ranked outside the Top 50 to win a title this year following World No. 63 Jiri Vesely, who won in Auckland last month.

 

“I’m really happy to be able to win my first ATP title at age 34. I dreamed about not retiring without winning an ATP title. It is very important to every player; for me it is very meaningful, without a doubt. Quito will stay in my memory forever. I hope that this is not the first and last, and that from today on I continue to play good tennis to be able to stay in the Top 100,” said the Dominican Republic native.

atpworldtour.com: February 8 2015 Zagreb, Croatia - Guillermo Garcia-Lopez survived a clash between two of the hottest players on the ATP World Tour in 2015, battling past Andreas Seppi to claim the PBZ Zagreb Indoors title on Sunday.

Garcia-Lopez fired 25 winners, converting on two of five break points.

 

It was the World No. 33's fourth ATP World Tour crown and first in the Croatian capital. The La Roda native earns €80,000 and 250 Emirates ATP Ranking points with the win, improving to 9-3 in 2015. It is his second title in as many years, having won in Casablanca in 2014 (d. Granollers) and first on hard courts since upsetting Rafael Nadal en route to the Bangkok crown in 2010. Seppi, who falls to 3-4 in finals on the ATP World Tour, takes home €42,100 and 150 Emirates ATP Ranking points for his efforts
