Stefanos Tsitsipas Wins Biggest Title of His Career

Greek tennis sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas won the biggest title of his career so far beating Austria’s Dominic Thiem in the final of ATP finals 2-1 sets in London on Sunday.

The Greek lost the first set on the tie-break 6-7, but came back on the second winning by 6-2. The final set was full of drama, but Tsitsipas won on the tie-break 7-6.

At 21 years and three months, Tsitsipas is the youngest Nitto ATP Finals champion since former World No. 1 Lleyton Hewitt (20) in 2001 in Sydney.

Tsitsipas, who earned $2,656,000 in prize money and 1,300 ATP Rankings points in five matches this week, is also the first player since David Nalbandian in 2005 to recover from losing the opening set and claim the title.

After stunning 6-3, 6-4 Roger Federer on Saturday’s semifinal, Tsitsipas produced another fantastic performance.
