Bucharest - Spanish veteran Guillermo Garcia-Lopez won his fifth ATP title on Sunday with a 7-6 (7/5), 7-6 (13/11) victory over young Czech Jiri Vesely in the Bucharest clay court final.

The 31-year-old fifth seed thwarted his 21-year-old opponent's bid to win a second career trophy after his maiden crown at Auckland in January.

“I feel like I'm doing the right things to improve my game and my ranking," said Garcia-Lopez. 

"When you work hard, there is always a reward, not only in tennis, but in life in general.”
