Sao Paulo - Uruguay's Pablo Cuevas won the Sao Paulo clay court tournament on Sunday, retaining the title he won last year by beating Spain's Pablo Carreno Busta 7-6 (7/4), 6-3.

It was a second straight tournament victory in Brazil for Cuevas, the world number 27, after he overcame Rafael Nadal on the way to sealing the Rio de Janeiro event last week.

The two tournaments take the 30-year-old's career tally to five, all of them won on clay since 2014.
