Top-seeded Dominic Thiem of Austria beat Slovenia's Alijaz Bedene on Sunday to win the Argentina Open.
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP) Top-seeded Dominic Thiem of Austria beat Slovenia's Alijaz Bedene 6-2, 6-4 on Sunday to win the Argentina Open for the second time in three seasons.
The 24-year-old Thiem, ranked No. 6 in the world, didn't lose a set in the clay-court event. He won his ninth career title and first since an event in Rio de Janeiro in February 2017.
''When you win a tournament it's good news, because we're used to losing more than winning,'' Thiem said. ''With these conditions—slow and hot—there are many chances for me to play well. It was my goal before starting the week and it is incredible to have achieved it.''
The 24-year-old Bedene dropped to 0-3 against Thiem.
In the doubles final, fourth-seeded Andres Molteni and Horacio Zeballos of Argentina beat top-seeded Juan Sebastian Cabal and Robert Farah of Colombia 6-3, 5-7, 10-3.
