Victor Estrella Burgos has won his third straight title at the Ecuador Open, defeating Paolo Lorenzi 6-7 (7-2) 7-5 7-6 (8-6) in the final.
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, who eliminated Australia’s Matthew Ebden in the round of 16, 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.
