– Pablo Carreno Busta won his first ATP World Tour singles title in his third final of the season (Sao Paulo, Estoril). The 25-year-old Spaniard denied countryman Roberto Bautista Agut his third title of 2016.
– Carreno Busta is the sixth first-time winner on the ATP World Tour this season. Players trying to win their first title in 2016 are now 6-11.
– The match was the sixth all-countryman final of the season and third featuring Spaniards. Carreno Busta also evened his FedEx ATP Head2Head series with Bautista Agut at 1-all.
– Bautista Agut was trying to win his fifth career title and third on hard courts. The Spaniard falls to 4-5 in ATP World Tour finals.
– Guillermo Garcia-Lopez and Henri Kontinen, playing together for the first time this week, saved five match points in the second-set tie-break to come back and beat Andre Begemann and Leander Paes.
– The win marks Kontinen’s 10th career ATP World Tour doubles title. Garcia-Lopez hadn’t played in a doubles final since 2014 but celebrates his third career doubles crown.


Carreno Busta: “It’s an amazing feeling. I worked very hard to be here and now I have to enjoy this moment… To [beat] Roberto you have to fight because he’s a really tough player. He’s a Spanish player like me. It’s not easy to play against another Spanish player.”

“To win my first ATP World Tour title is a dream because you can play finals and I played two this year. But when you continue working and you continue fighting all the time and finally the result arrives, for me, it’s really, really good.”

Bautista Agut: “I had many chances to get closer to the win today but I didn’t [take] the chances… I didn’t play well when I was set and break up. Tennis is like this, no? When you have the chance and you don’t [take] it, then you lose.”

“I came here to play some matches, so it was a positive week for me.”

Garcia-Lopez: “Doubles, everything is close. And then we won the tie-break, I think our energy went up, that’s why we won.”

Kontinen: “We just clutched up and found big serves on big points… It’s a lot of luck involved in a comeback like that… We kept believing and somehow found a way.”
