BUENOS AIRES, Feb. 26 (UPI) --
Spain's David Ferrer
rallied from a first-set loss Sunday to prevail over countryman Nicolas Almagro and claim the title of the Copa Claro tennis event.
The top-seeded Ferrer bested Almagro, the defending Buenos Aires champ, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, improving to 13-1 this year and 9-0 against Almagro for his career.
Ferrer bounced back after going down early, reeling off five aces to take the match in just under 2 hours on the red clay at Buenos Aires Lawn Tennis Club.
Ferrer lost to fellow Spaniard Juan Carlos Ferrero in the 2010 Buenos Aires finals.
