SAO PAULO (REUTERS) - Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas won his third consecutive Brazil Open title by beating Spain's Albert Ramos-Vinolas 6-7 (3-7), 6-4, 6-4 on Monday in a final that eventually finished more than 24 hours late after successive rain delays.
The match was halted on Sunday (March 5) with third seed Cuevas trailing 7-6 (7-3), 3-3.
When the final restarted, the world No. 30 quickly took control, winning the second set 6-4 and then taking the third by the same score against the second-seeded Spaniard who is ranked 24th in the world.
The final took almost three hours to complete and the victory gave Cuevas his sixth career title.
