Carreno Busta beats Fognini to win Kremlin Cup

MOSCOW (AP) Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta came back from a set down to beat Italy's Fabio Fognini and win the Kremlin Cup on Sunday.

Carreno Busta won his second career title 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 despite needing treatment on his ankle midway through the second set.

Fognini saved two match points in the final game before Carreno Busta secured the win, dropping to his knees in celebration.

The victory caps a strong season for the 25-year-old Spaniard, who won his first ATP title at the Winston-Salem Open in August.

He is 2-2 in career finals, while Fognini drops to 4-8.

On Saturday, Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova won the women's Kremlin Cup title, beating Australia's Daria Gavrilova 6-2, 6-1.
