Bastad - Carlos Berlocq of Argentina upset eighth-seeded Fernando Verdasco to win the clay-court Swedish Open 7-5, 6-1 on Sunday and clinch his first ATP World Tour title.

Berlocq broke the Spaniard's serve twice in the second set after a gruelling opening set that lasted more than an hour.

It was the second ATP final of the 30-year-old Berlocq's career.

Berlocq was scheduled to play in the men's doubles final later on Sunday.
