The 21 year old Greek tennis player, Stefanos Tsitsipas, won 6-7 (6-8) 6-2 7-6 (7-4) to claim the biggest title of his career so far. The match was played in the O2 Arena in London. Dominic Thiem, former French Open runner-up, fell away in the second set and the start of the third before fighting back. Tsitsipas is the youngest winner of the ATP Finals since Australia’s Lleyton Hewitt in 2001 and claims prize money of 2 million dollars.

“It’s been a rollercoaster. Holding this trophy is amazing,” the world’s number six said. Tsitsipas broke thousands of peoples heart after knocking out Roger Federer in the semi-finals 6-3, 6-4. The Greek still stands 6th in the ATP Ranking with 5300 points, just behind, Russian Daniil Medvedev.
