Nicolas Jarry returned to the winner’s circle following a 6-7(5-7), 7-6(7-5), 6-2 over Argentina’s Tomas Martin Etcheverry in front of his home fans in Santiago, Chile.
It was Jarry’s second career title, first since 2019 Bastad.
“It’s really unbelievable. I can’t believe that I’m champion in this historic tournament of my family,” Jarry told the ATP after the 2 hour, 47 minute win. “It means a lot to me, especially for the two weeks in a row. It’s been very tough and I managed to keep on going this week. It’s been amazing.”
Jarry won his last three matches from a set down. The 27-year-old Chilean was suspended for a doping violation back in 2000 when he fully lost his ranking. The 87th ranked Jarry will move up to near No. 50.
The 23-year-old Etcheverry was looking for his 1st career title. This was his 1st career final.
