VINA DEL MAR, Chile (AP) -- Juan Monaco beat Carlos Berlocq 6-3, 6-7 (1), 6-1 in an all-Argentina final at the Vina del Mar VTR Open on Sunday to win his fourth ATP title.

The top-seeded Monaco earned his first title since winning three in 2007 -- and all have come on clay.

It was the first ATP final for Berlocq, who advanced after defeating second-seeded Juan Ignacio Chela, another Argentine.

The Chilean tournament is the start of a monthlong swing across Latin America, with other clay court events upcoming in Brazil, Argentina and Mexico.
