Sixth-seeded Ernests Gulbis won his fourth career title Sunday by rallying to beat Guillermo Garcia-Lopez of Spain 3-6, 6-4, 6-0 at the St. Petersburg Open.

SHE'S A WINNER

Andy Roddick has one of the world's hottest WAGs.

After an exchange of breaks in the opening games, the 74th-ranked Garcia-Lopez broke the Latvian twice to win the first set.

Garcia-Lopez took a 4-1 lead in the second but Gulbis won five consecutive games to even the match. He then dominated the third set and sealed the victory on his first match point with a service winner.

The 36th-ranked Gulbis was playing in his second final since winning his third title in Delray Beach in February.

Garcia-Lopez was looking for his third title. He last won in 2010 in Bangkok.
