This was the third final of the season for the super talented youngster but the first without Rafael Nadal on the other side of the net, facing a little bit forgotten former Top 10 player who never lost an ATP final before. This was the 39th win for the Greek in the breakthrough season and he will now try to finish it in the best possible way in Basel and the NextGen Finals in Milan.
Representing my country at such high-level tournaments, being the first Greek to crack the Top 100 is very, very special for me.

"I'm obviously very happy. I wish that it's not the last one", Gulbis told his opponent on court after the match. "So it's just emotional", the world number 15 said. Gael made me work for it today, that's for sure, so credit to him.
