Jarry triumphs in front of Chilean crowd, beats Etcheverry for Santiago title
Using home-court advantage to his benefit, Nicolas Jarry triumphed at home in Chile by beating Tomas Martin Etcheverry in the Santiago final on Sunday night.
The Chilean fans certainly love their tennis. They love it even more when one of their own is succeeding.
Nicolas Jarry, Chile’s top-ranked player, completed a brilliant run on the Golden Swing in South American in perfect fashion on Sunday — with a title in front of the home crowd at the Movistar Open. Jarry overcame Tomas Martin Etcheverry 6-7(5), 7-6(5), 6-2 in the Santiago final after two hours and 46 minutes.
“It’s really unbelievable,” Jarry assured. “I can’t believe I’m a champion at this historical tournament. It means a lot to me. It’s been amazing… I think Tommy went down a little bit in the third set. I tried to push with all my heart here. He played an unbelievable two sets but I managed to win the second-set tiebreak.”
Second ATP title for Jarry, second Chilean champion in Santiago
Jarry is the second Chilean champion in the four-year history of this event in Santiago. Cristian Garin treated the fans to a title in 2021, while Brazil’s Thiago Seyboth Wild won it in 2020 and Spaniard Pedro Martinez lifted the trophy in 2022.
This is the 27-year-old’s second ATP title, having previously prevailed three years ago in Bastad to go along with runner-up performances in Sao Paulo (2018) and Geneva (2019).
