Rosol beats Garcia-Lopez for BRD Nastase title

Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic bites the trophy after winning the final of the BRD Nastase Tiriac 2013 Trophy.

BUCHAREST, Romania — Lukas Rosol of the Czech Republic beat Spain’s Guillermo Garcia-Lopez 6-3, 6-2 to win the BRD Nastase Tiriac Trophy for his first ATP title on Sunday.

Rosol completed an impressive run in brushing aside Garcia-Lopez in 67 minutes, converting four of his nine break points to secure the victory in a final between two unseeded players.

The No. 48-ranked Rosol overcame three seeded players including three-time champion Giles Simon of France, the No.2-seeded player, in the semifinals on his way to the final. He saved all eight break points he faced to end Simon’s 16-match winning streak at the clay-court event.

Garcia-Lopez struggled to keep up with the 27-year-old Rosol a day after he defeated 2011 champion Florian Mayer in three sets to earn a place in the final.
