KITZBUEHEL, Austria -- Marcel Granollers won his fourth ATP title after overcoming a disastrous start Saturday, defeating second-seeded Juan Monaco of Argentina 0-6, 7-6 (3), 6-4 in the bet-at-home Cup final. The 53rd-ranked Spaniard won his first title since also beating Monaco two years ago in Valencia, Spain. Becoming the first Spanish winner here since Alex Corretja in 2002, Granollers improved to 4-2 in career finals. "Its a very special feeling to win here," said Granollers, who had failed to go beyond the quarterfinals of an event this season but ended Robin Haases two-year winning run in Kitzbuehel in the semifinals. Monaco was seeking his ninth career title and second of the year, after winning in May in Duesseldorf, Germany. The 31st-ranked Monaco, who won here in 2007, dictated the pace in the opening set with strong forehands from the baseline, sending Granollers from one corner to the other. Monaco broke Granollers first service game with a winner off the net cord and added two more breaks to take the opening set in 23 minutes. "I didnt play well at all in the beginning. He was very solid from the start," said Granollers, who won only nine points in the set. "When youre close to winning a title, you get nervous." Granollers saved two more break points early in the second set, helping him to settle, and broke himself at the first opportunity to lead 5-3. "He had chances in the second set as well and I was lucky he couldnt take them," Granollers said. "From then on it became a different match." Granollers had a 4-0 lead in the deciding set. He missed three match points at 5-2 but converted at the fourth chance on Monacos serve when the Argentine sent a backhand volley long. "Marcel deserved to win," Monaco said. "In the end, he just played better than me." Vans Toy Story Mercadolibre. In Europe, top teams seem to be largely happy with their squads after spending nearly $1 billion in the off-season.
