It’s the power of three for David Ferrer…
The 31-year-old Spanish tennis player, who defeated his compatriot Nicolas Almagro in the previous round, has claimed his third straight title at Argentina’s Copa Claro tournament.
Ferrer defeated Italy’s Fabio Fognini 6-4, 6-3 Sunday on the outdoor clay courts in the Argentine capital.
It was the 21st ATP singles title for the tournament’s top-seed Ferrer.
Second-seeded Fognini was playing his fifth consecutive clay-court final since the French Open.
The Italian won the final a week ago in Chile for his third tour singles title.
Ferrer, currently ranked No. 4 in the world, had previously won three consecutive titles at one other tournament, New Zealand’s Heineken Open in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
