Fernando Verdasco beat Nicolas Almagro 6-3, 7-6 (4) to win the U.S. Men's Clay Court Championship .
Verdasco ended a six-match losing streak in tournament finals. He also reached the doubles final and had been on the court six hours longer than Almagro going into the final.
"I'm so tired I don't know if I can talk so much," said Verdasco.
Almagro had a walkover in the semifinals when Sam Querrey pulled out because of back injury.
