Tsitsipas wins his Second open title

Tsitispas Open 13 win

After his victory in 2019, Stefanos Tsitsipas has captured his second title at the Open 13 Provence. The greek defeated the likes of Canadian teen ager Felix Auger-Aliassime 6/3 6/4 in 1h26 mins

Stefanos Tsitsipas is undefeated in Marseille since 2018. Better yet, during his consecutive victorious campaigns the world number 6 never dropped a set. He is therefore on a 8 match and 16 set winning streak.

Auger-Aliassime has to be envious of these stats, he who has yet to lift a winners trophy in 5 attempts.

But this Sunday had Stefanos Tsitsipas written all over it. The Greek started off the match kicking and never left a chance to his opponent in the first set. 6/3.

All week long, FAA was able to produce breath taking comebacks, but not today. Despite some signs of a comeback in the second set with a break back at 3-3, Felix was not able to overcome the strength and determination of Tsitsipas. Final score 6/3 6/4.

It is the 3rd time since the tournament was created that a player was able to capture back to back titles. Thomas Enqvist and Marc Rosset were the only two to have managed such a performance in the past.

Stefanos becomes the first man to retain the @Open13 since Thomas Enqvist in 1998.
