Valencia: World No. 3 Juan Carlos Ferrero won his second title in two weeks when he beat Christophe Rochus of Belgium 6-2, 6-4 in the Valencia Open final on Sunday. Ferrero exceeded expectations before his home crowd by not dropping a set all week and improving his season record on clay to 17-1. Rochus, ranked 134th, was appearing in his first career ATP final after a run of four consecutive first round losses. Ferrero won the Monte Carlo Masters two weeks ago and reached the semifinals in Barcelona last weekend. It was Ferrero's ninth career title and the 23-year-old Spaniard earned $61,700. (AP)
