Moya welcomes the acclaim from the Argentinian crowd
Carlos Moya made swift work of beating Filippo Volandri in straight sets as he won the Copa Telmex title in Buenos Aires for the third time.

The Spaniard, on a high after disposing of compatriot Juan Carlos Ferrero in the semis, rarely looked in trouble as he overcame the Italian 7-6 (8-6) 6-4.

Moya, seeded fifth, first won the title in 1995, his maiden career win, before repeating the feat in 2003.

"Hopefully I can win many more here and this won't be the last," he said.

The match went with serve for the first seven games before Volandri broke for a 4-3 lead and then went 5-3 up.

But Moya rallied, capitalising on his opponent's unforced errors, saving set point and then winning three straight games to put the match back on serve at 6-5.

In the tiebreak, Moya again capitalised on Volandri's mistakes for a 4-0 lead, but then struggled to close out the set after the Italian saved two set points.

Moya dominated the second set as Volandri found it difficult to handle the Spaniard's serve and forehand.
