NICE, France -- Second-seeded Ernests Gulbis will meet Federico Delbonis in the Open de Nice final after brushing aside defending champion Albert Montanes on Friday. Gulbis of Latvia dropped just one point on his first serve on his way to a 6-0, 6-3 victory over the Spaniard. "He allowed me to play," Gulbis said. "I felt confident from the first rally on. I had good timing. The first set was one of the best sets I have played." The seventh-seeded Delbonis ousted fourth-seeded Frenchman Gilles Simon 6-2, 6-4. Gulbis has won all five of his previous finals on the ATP tour, and triumphed in Marseille in February. Delbonis, who beat top-seeded John Isner in the quarterfinals, is 1-1 in his previous tour finals. The 23-year-old Argentine lifted his first title in Sao Paolo in March, after losing in Hamburg last year. "It was a pretty good match," Delbonis said. "Gilles always fights and he showed it in the second set when he broke me. But I took control again. "The final will be very similar to the match against Isner. Ernests has a strong service. If I am focused, I will always have a chance." Martin St. Louis Jersey .

All three of their victories this season have come away from home.Its always great to win, but when you dont win that much, its even better, Carter-Williams said. Im not sure what it is. When were struggling on the road, its a little easier for us to come back together because everyone is against us. All we have is each other.Philadelphia trailed by 11 in the third quarter, but led by as many as 14 points in the fourth.The Sixers also got a lift from their bench, which outscored the Magic reserves 37-20.Victor Oladipo had 23 points for the Magic. Nik Vucevic finished with 19 points and 17 rebounds, and Tobias Harris added 17 points.The Magic have lost four straight and six of their last seven.Orlando looked to be in control as it inched out to its double-digit lead. But the Sixers closed the third quarter on a 22-7 spurt, and took a four-point lead into the final period.Philadelphia kept that momentum going, scoring seven straight to open the fourth.Orlando tried to stage its own late rally, but was thwarted by late turnovers.Magic coach Jacque Vaughn tinkered with his starting lineup Sunday, inserting rookie Elfrid Payton at point guard and Kyle OQuinn at power forward.The move meant Oladipo shifted over to shooting guard, marking the first time he and Payton had started together in Orlandos backcourt this season. It also meant that off-season acquisitions Channing Frye and Evan Fournier — whho entered the night averaging 14 points per game — were sent to the bench to anchor the second unit.ddddddddddddResults were mixed, but there was briefly a tangible effect on the defensive end for Orlando.OQuinn was the most active early, blocking three shots in the first half and being generally disruptive to the Sixers in the halfcourt with a handful of deflections.Vucevic said its all a work in progress.I think defensively, its not really about a lineup, Vucevic said. Its about us talking, being vocal, and following the game plan we have.Philadelphia was held to just 5 of 19 from the field in second quarter and shot only 42 per cent for the night.It turned out to be enough, with all nine of the Sixers available players scoring at least five points.There was a brief verbal spat at one point during a timeout between Carter-Williams and Nerlens Noel, but coach Brett Brown said he liked how they were able to work it out among themselves.Its teammates talking to teammates. Its real, Brown said. It proved to be a real healthy conversation so I let it go ... Its not like they just met each other and have issues. Its healthy issues, its real, thats what families go through. It aint always pretty. They talked it through and off we go.___TIP-INSMagic: The starting lineup Sunday was Orlandos eighth different one of the season. ...
