After that Cuevas took the lead and never gave it away. “This evening we have to congratulate the winner. Pablo played really good and missed so few balls, ” Robredo tells us. “In the second set I tried to play more aggressive. This could have let to two things. The other guy can think he is doing a bad job loosing points now or you can miss a lot more yourself. Unfortunately for me, the last thing happened tonight.” The Spaniard looks back on his season pretty satisfied. “With good results at the Grand Slams, being in the top 20, being runner-up here, I am a happy guy and thankful for where I am right now.” Tournament champion Cuevas is a very happy and very tired player after an exhausting week. “I feel extremely happy with two ATP titles in such a short time. I did not think I could ever come back to this level again. Tomorrow I will leave for a Challenger, but surely when I am back home I will celebrate this victory with my friends and family.” Cuevas (ATP 45 at the end of 2009) has made a great comeback from the 925th place in 2012 to the current number 60 in the world. The guy from Uruguay is back on track, winning his first ATP title two weeks ago in Bastad and now getting his second victory in Umag.
