Pablo Cuevas had to get through qualifiers just to make the main draw at the Vegeta Croatia Open, but on Sunday he hefted the trophy, beating Spain’s Tommy Robredo, the defending champion at the event, 6-3, 6-4.
The win gave Cuevas his second consecutive title win, having won in Bastad two weeks ago, for his first and second career cups on the ATP tour, at age 28. His ranking will jump a full 20 points from No. 60 to No. 40 when the new rankings are published on Monday.
