Surprising Cuevas wins 2nd title in 3 weeks in Umag

It couldn’t get any better for Pablo Cuevas! The Uruguayan has just won his maiden title in Bastad to win the second one 2 weeks after in Umag!

The world no.71 had to come straight from the qualifications to win this one and he did it in great style after beating both the 1st and second seed (Fognini and Robredo) in the same day (rain delay) and with the same result: 6-3 6-4.

From Cuevas

After the match Pablo commented “I’m really happy. I never expected to win two tournaments in a row. This week was more difficult because I had to play qualifying and I played against very good players. During the two years I was out, I thought I would never be able to play again and especially at that level.”
