DELRAY BEACH, Fla., March 3 (UPI) -- Latvian Ernests Gulbis collected his second Delray Beach title Sunday, besting France's Edouard Roger-Vasselin in straight sets.

Gulbis needed a first-set tiebreaker then rolled in the second set, notching a 7-6 (7-3), 6-3 victory over the Frenchman in a 1-hour, 36-minute affair.

Gulbis, who also claimed the 2010 Delray championship, was down 4-5 in the first set before rallying to the victory, improving to 3-0 record in ATP World Tour finals.

He became the first qualifier to win a tour event since Jarkko Nieminen claimed the Apia International Sydney in January 2012.

The 29-year-old Roger-Vasselin was appearing in his first career final.
