Argentina’s Guido Pella claimed his first career title at the Brazil Open on Sunday, ending a streak of losing all four of his previous finals.

The world number 48 defeated Chile’s Christian Garin 7-5, 6-3 to take the clay-court title having lost previous finals in Rio in 2016, Munich in 2017, the Umag event in 2018 and at Cordoba earlier this season on the South American swing.

Pella, 28, didn’t lose a set all week in Sao Paulo and his greater experience told on Sunday against his 22-year-old opponent who was appearing in his first championship match.
