COSTA DO SAUIPE, Brazil (AP) — Top-seeded Juan Carlos Ferrero beat Lukasz Kobut of Poland 6-1, 6-0, to win the Brazil Open on Sunday.
Kobut repeatedly missed his first serve, giving Ferrero too much help. The Spanish player was 5-0 up in the second set and broke Kubot's serve to clinch the title.
It was Ferrero's 13th ATP title, and it came just two days after turning 30.
"You never expect to play a one-sided final like this," Ferrero said. "One is always nervous in the beginning of a final, and it wasn't different today. I thought I played well from the beginning, and with two breaks of serve ahead quite early in the match, I never looked back."
It was Kubot's second ATP singles final, and his second loss.
"It is very unfortunate I couldn't play my best tennis today," Kubot said. "Juan Carlos played a great match and didn't give me any chances."
