With Roger-Vasselin serving for the set at 5-4, Gulbis gets peevish with the result that he begins to play his best tennis, getting the break back and eventually taking the tie breaker, 7-3....and Gulbis easily cruises through the second set, 6-3, to take his third career title. Seeing as how he had to win three qualifying matches to get in the main draw of the tournament, this has been a long, but fruitful week. Ernests may be tired going into Indian Wells, but as he lost in the first round last year, he has no points to defend. Incidentally, this is one of the very few ATP tournament finals ever to be contested by players outside the top 100 rankings (Edouard, 105; Ernests, 109), though both men are safely inside now. Pleased as punch, I am.
