Gonzalez claims Amersfoort crown
Fernando Gonzalez

Second seed Fernando Gonzalez eased to a straight-sets victory over Agustin Calleri in the Amersfoort Open final.

The Chilean, who reached the Wimbledon quarter-finals, beat his Argentine opponent 7-5 6-3 in Holland on Sunday.

Gonzalez overcame a break in the first set to win it from 5-4 down and broke again in the fourth game of set two.

His vast array of shots - from powerful forehands to deft drop shots and lobs - was too much for Calleri and gave him his sixth title of his career.

"My main target for this year is to finish top 10," said Gonzalez, who was ranked 27th prior to Sunday's win.

"I feel great at the moment and everything is working out as it should. Maybe this is my best form ever."

Calleri said he was satisfied with his performance in only his second ATP event since recovering from injury.

"I lost today against a player in his best form," he said.

"Gonzalez played perfect tennis this week. It took me a lot of energy to keep up with him in the first set and when I was serving for the set I lacked power."
