Valencia - David Ferrer of Spain won the Valencia Open for the third time by beating Ukraine's Alexandr Dolgopolov 6-1, 3-6, 6-4 on Sunday.

The top-seeded Ferrer recovered from two breakpoints down at 3-3 in the third set to hold, and he made the decisive break to clinch the title when Dolgopolov sent a shot into the net.

It was the fifth-ranked Ferrer's sixth title of the season and 17th in his career.
