Argentina's Londero wins maiden ATP title

Cape Town - Argentina's Juan Ignacio Londero claimed his maiden ATP title when he won the inaugural Cordoba Open.

According to the ATP Tour's official website, the 25-year-old hadn't played in a tour-level main draw before this tournament, but went all the way to the final where he beat countryman Guido Pella 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.

Londero, who was a wildcard entrant, was down a set and a break against the 28-year-old Pella, who also was going for his maiden ATP Tour title after losing his first three finals.

But Londero stayed aggressive and took control of the final, with his forehand inflicting much of the damage.

Pella had beaten Londero all three of their prior meetings - two on the Futures tour and one on the ATP Challenger Tour.
