Argentine wild card Facundo Diaz Acosta won his first ATP title in Buenos Aires on Sunday by beating Nicolas Jarry, the man who knocked out Carlos Alcaraz in the semi-final. World number 87 Diaz Acosta cruised to a 6-3, 6-4 victory, sealing the triumph on a sixth match point. Before this week, left-hander Diaz Acosta, 23, had won just four tour matches in his career. He will now move up to 59th in the world.

On Saturday, Chilean world number 21 Jarry celebrated the biggest victory of his career by eliminating second-ranked Alcaraz in straight sets.

The defeat extended Alcaraz’s title drought to nine tournaments since his Wimbledon triumph last July.
