Hugo Dellien clinched his first title of the season. The 25-year-old from Bolivia won the 2019 Cachantun Open by KIA held on the clay-courts of the Club Manquehue in Santiago de Chile. Dellien rallied past first-time ATP Challenger finalist Tung-Lin Wu of Chinese Taipei 5-7, 7-6(1), 6-1 on Sunday afternoon.

The World No. 87 sent down seven aces, winning 65 per cent of his first serves. Dellien capitalized on five of his six break point opportunities to secure victory in two hours and five minutes.
