WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Spains Pablo Carreno Busta won his first ATP World Tour title Saturday, beating countryman Roberto Bautista Agut in 6-7 (8), 7-6 (7), 6-4 in the Winston-Salem Open.Busta, ranked 49th in the world, overcame dropping a first-set tiebreaker to upset the 17th-ranked Agut for his first tour title in three final-round appearances, all coming this year.This is amazing, an amazing feeling, Busta said. I worked very hard to be here, and now I get to enjoy this moment.The 25-year-old Busta needed just over 2 1/2 hours to become the sixth first-time winner on the ATP World Tour this season, and the first to do so in an American tournament.The 28-year-old Agut, seeded second, was trying to win his third title of the season and the fifth of his career. He won this year at Auckland, New Zealand, and Sofia, Bulgaria.It was a tough match, a tough week, said Agut, who won three three-set matches to advance to the final. I came here to play some matches, so it was a positive week for me to be in the final. One more final in my career.Agut had his chances to add a tournament title, overcoming two set points in the first-set tiebreaker. He trailed Busta 6-4, but won four consecutive points to take the tiebreaker and the set.When I lost the first set, it was a really tough moment, Busta said.However, after Agut and Busta broke each others serve in the fifth and sixth games of the second set to force another tiebreaker, Busta wound up ripping off seven straight points in the tiebreaker to take the set.Busta got another break on Agut in the sixth game of the third set to go up 4-2. That appeared to deter Agut, who was held without a point over Bustas final two service games.I had many chances to get closer to a win today, Agut said. But I didnt get the chances. I didnt play well when I was a set and break up. Finishes like this, when you have the chance, if you dont get it, then you lose.The win will bump Bustas world ranking up to No. 40 when the ATP releases the updated rankings on Monday. The timing couldnt be better for Busta, who will play his first match at the U.S. Open on Tuesday.This year, Ive played really tough matches against top players, Busta said. This is important to me. I dont have time to celebrate this title, but this just gives me more confidence to play there at the U.S. Open.I arrive there with confidence, and I can get even more if I win the tournament.

Plans are reportedly in motion to install a Super Rugby franchise in Fiji in an attempt to stem the flood of players from the Pacific Islands to the riches on offer overseas.The new team is set to receive the backing of a host of global companies and kit manufacturers, and would be based in a new 20,000-seat stadium, according to the Daily Telegraph.The plan is yet to be endorsed by Super Rugby but Ben Ryan, the Briton who led Fiji to sevens gold at the Rio Olympics, is leading the charge to establish the team by 2018.I believe the impact of this plan would see Fiji win the World Cup one day, Ryan said. We have shown in sevens what we can do. And if you just look at the impact the Fiji players are having on the tier one countries, they are their star players in New Zealand, Australia, England and France.That generation has gone but the future players are there and we have to make sure they stay on the island and they get the right -resource, the right coaching and the fundamentals around it, like we did with the sevens, so there is no reason why we cant dominate.The Pacific Islands of Fiji, Tonga and Samoa have long seen homegrown talent leave their shores since rugby turned professional in 1995, with players taking lucrative contracts in Super Rugby and European competitions.World Rugbys residency rule, which allows thoose without an international cap to play for a country after three years of living there, means many of the most talented Pacific Islanders end up playing for the biggest tier one nations rather than their countries of birth.ddddddddddddnglands Nathan Hughes is a prime example of this. The Wasps No. 8 was born in Fiji but turned down the chance to play for them at last years World Cup and could even line up against them in Eddie Jones pack at Twickenham on Saturday.If you are a young -Fijian who wants to play rugby professionally as a career, you cant stay in Fiji, Ryan said. World Rugby are looking to change the residency law from three to five years, but I dont think that will work because players will just go younger.For me, it comes back to giving us an opportunity on the island with a franchise. Super Rugby could own a part of it and it would keep everyone on the island and we could build academies, which would generate a pathway for players and coaches.Ever since I went to the island, I have been thinking about how we get Fiji, Tonga and Samoa to be consistent World Cup quarterfinalists and knocking on the doors of the semifinals.
