Juan Carlos Ferrero overcame a long rain delay on Sunday to defeat Pablo Andujar 6-4, 6-0 in an all-Spanish final of the Mercedes Cup.

The 31-year-old veteran recorded his first ace of the match to clinch the first set. He rolled through the next six games to secure his 16th career title and first since winning last August in Umag, Croatia.

Ferrero was playing only his third tournament of the year after being out for two months with wrist and knee injuries.

The final was delayed for 3 hours because of rain.
