QUITO, Ecuador (AP) — Victor Estrella Burgos won his third straight title at the Ecuador Open, defeating Paolo Lorenzi 6-7 (2), 7-5, 7-6 (6) Sunday.
Sunday's title was the third in ATP singles for the unseeded Dominican, and they've all come on clay in Quito.
The third-seeded Lorenzi was trying for his second ATP singles title after winning last year on clay in Kitzbuehl, Austria.
Estrella Burgos advanced with victories over top-seeded Ivo Karlovic of Croatia, Federico Gaio of Italy, and No. 4 Thomaz Bellucci of Brazil.
