Tsitsipas defends Monte Carlo crown

Stefanos Tsitsipas successfully defended his Monte Carlo singles title, beating Spain’s Alejandro Davidovich Fokina 6-3 7-6 (7-3).

The Greek is the first back-to-back Monte Carlo champion since Rafael Nadal won three in a row from 2016-18.

“Things didn’t see to be going well at one point but but I managed to stay well composed and am really proud of my game,” said Tsitsipas in his on-court interview.

Last year’s win heralded a successful run on European clay for the 23-year-old, who went on to reach the Barcelona final and win the Lyon title, before finishing as the runner-up to Novak Djokovic in the Roland Garros final.

Tsitsipas will be the top seed at next week’s Barcelona Open.
