He beat Gonzalez, defending champion in the semi finals and then defeated Juan Monaco in the final. In the final Bellucci won the first set comfortably 6-3 but then lost his concentration completely, dropping the next set to love. Thomaz managed to weather the storm with some impressive serving in the early going of the third set and started blazing  forehand and backhand winners from everywhere, as well as showing great touch in and around the net.  Monaco simply had no answer to Bellucci’s all round game.

Well done T-Bell! We look forward to you trying to win at home next week, Costa do Sauipe, Brazil.
