Diego Schwartzman gave home fans plenty to celebrate about as he came from a set down to beat Alessandro Giannessi at the inaugural Cordoba Open.
The third-seeded Schwartzman was made to work for his 6-7 (4-7), 6-3, 6-0 victory by the Italian qualifier.
The Argentine twice found himself a break up in the opening set, but Giannessi bounced back on each occasion and then stunned the locals when he took the tie-breaker.
The Italian looked set for victory when he broke first in the second set for a 3-2 lead, but Schwartzman won the final four games before running away with proceedings in the decider.
