Stefanos Tsitsipas, No 5 in the world, won his first Masters 1000 tournament in Monte-Carlo. The Greek swept Andrey Rublev (8th) in two sets: 6-3, 6-3 in 1h11 of play.

In total, Tsitsipas now has six titles on the ATP tour, with also the Masters in 2019 as well as four ATP 250 tournaments (Stockholm 2018, Marseille and Estoril 2019, Marseille 2020).

After losing in the 2018 Masters 1000 final against Novak Djokovic and in Madrid 2019 against Rafael Nadal, the 22-year-old Greek this time has dominated his opponent 6-3, 6-3 to lift the trophy.

“I am overwhelmed by so many emotions and nostalgia. I consider this week in Monte-Carlo to be the best of my life. I came here for the first time when I was 6 years old. It is the only tournament that I used to come to see when I was a little boy. I watched Rafa (Nadal) and Roger (Federer) play every time, so it’s amazing for me. I couldn’t imagine myself in that position too” he said.
