Delbonis wins 1st ATP title at Brazil Open

Federico Delbonis beat Paolo Lorenzi 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 to win the Brazil Open 2014 title.

Delbonis broke Lorenzi's serve to start the decisive set and held on to close the match in 2 hours, 6 minutes after converting on his second match point.

Delbonis celebrated a nearly perfect week in which he also reached the semifinals in the doubles tournament.

"To tell you the truth, I have no words," Delbonis said. "I played well match after match. It was a great result in the end."

The 23-year-old lefty was playing only in his second ATP final. He had lost to Fabio Fognini last July after upsetting Roger Federer in the semifinals in Hamburg.

Rafael Nada defeated Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-3, 7-6 (3) to win the Rio Open 2014 titl.

Nadal looked comfortable in the final and improved his record on clay to 298 wins and 21 losses, the best in the Open Era.

The Spaniard declined to talk about his back, focusing instead on the victory.

"Clearly, it was important for me to get back and win after what happened in the final in Australia," Nadal said.

He said the heat, the court preparation and the quick balls used in the event made it difficult. He has complained about the fast balls all week.

Gonzalez eliminated in 1st round of Brazil Open 2012

Fernando Gonzalez lost to Igor Andreev 6-2, 6-3 in the first round of the Brazil Open 2012.

Gonzalez lost in just more than an hour. The Chilean had the support of the Brazilian crowd but won only six points on Andreev’s service games.

“I was happy, I tried to enjoy all the moments because I know the end of my career is near,” said Gonzalez, currently ranked 266th in the world.

Fernando announced he was retiring because he lacks the energy to play at the top level after a series of back, knee and hip injuries in recent years.
