Posted on July 25, 2005

No. 2 seed Fernando Gonzalez won his second title of the season Sunday at the ATP claycourt stop in Amersfoort, subduing unseeded Argentine Agustin Calleri 7-5, 6-3.

Calleri served for the first set at 5-4 before dropping the next three games, and dropped his record in career finals to 1-5.

"I am not disappointed about today, I faced a great player," Calleri said. "Fernando Gonzalez played an unbelievable match today. After a two-month injury break this has been great week for me and I feel very positive and confident."

Gonzalez's first title of the year came on hardcourts in January at Auckland. He is the third Chilean to claim the Dutch Open title after Marcelo Rios (1995) and Nicolas Massu (2003), after finishing runner-up last year.

In the doubles final the top-seeded Gonzalez and Chilean countryman Nicolas Massu came up short 6-4, 6-4 to No. 4 seeds Martin Garcia and Luis Horna, who claimed their first title of the year.

"I am very happy to finally win a title with Luis," Garcia said. "After two finals in Casablanca and Houston it is great to finally win."
