The 13 youngest ATP Tour title winners in 2023: Carlos Alcaraz 2nd, Holger Rune 3rd

Carlos Alcaraz celebrations

Thirteen players under the age of 25 won a title during the 2023 ATP Tour season while three of those players won titles while still in their teens.

The “new Big Three” of Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner and Holger Rune all feature on the list, but they didn’t claim the top prize.

13. Stefanos Tsitsipas – 24 years and 11 months

Stefanos Tsitsipas has been a regular on the ATP Tour since 2017 so it is easy to forget that he is still quite young as he only turned 25 in August this year.

A few days before his 25th birthday the Greek won the Los Cabos title in Mexico, which turned out to be his only singles trophy of the 2023 season and it is enough for a place on the list of players under 25 to win a title.

12. Francisco Cerundolo – 24 years and 10 months

Argentine Francisco Cerundolo finished runner-up to Arthur Fils at the Lyon Open in May (more on that below) before going one better at the Eastbourne International a month later.

Cerundolo defeated Tommy Paul to win the second title of his career.

11. Casper Ruud – 24 years and three months

Casper Ruud didn’t have the best of seasons compared to his brilliant 2022 campaign as he won only one title and that title came at the Estoril Open in April.

He did reach to more finals before the season was up as he finished runner-up at the French Open and Swedish Open with both of those events before his 25th birthday, which is in December.

10. Alex de Minaur – 24 years and 0 months

Alex de Minaur turned 24 on February 17 and just over a week later he won the Mexican Open, which was the seventh title of his career.

The Australian won his maiden ATP Tour title as a 19-year-old at the Sydney International back in 2019.

9. Alexei Popyrin – 23 years and 11 months

Two years after winning his first title at the Singapore Open, Alexei Popyrin returned to the title-winning circle as he defeated Stan Wawrinak in the Croatia Open final.

He lifted the title just six days before his 24th birthday.

8. Yibing Wu – 23 years and three months

Yibing Wu became the first Chinese player to reach an ATP Tour final when he defeated Taylor Fritz at the Dallas Open in February and he went one better a day later to become the first Chinese male to win a singles title.

Incredibly, he saved four championship points in the final to defeat American John Isner 6–7 (4–7), 7–6 (7–3), 7–6 (14–12).

7. Felix Auger-Aliassime – 23 years and two months

Felix Auger-Aliassime enjoyed his best season on the ATP Tour in 2022 as he won four titles and finished the year at No 6.

The 2023 campaign has not gone according to plan as he won only one title – the Swiss Indoors in October, which earned him a spot on this list – and finished at No 29 in the rankings.

6. Sebastian Baez – 22 years and one month

It doesn’t get much better than winning a title on home soil and Sebastian Baez won in front of adoring Argentine fans when he defeated compatriot Federico Coria on the clay in the Cordoba Open final in February.

The Argentine went on to win two more titles in 2023 – the Austrian Open and the Winston-Salem Open – with both finals taking place before his 23rd birthday.

5. Jannik Sinner – 21 years and five months

Man of the moment Jannik Sinner won four titles in 2023 and two of them came before his 22nd birthday.

The Italian won the Open Sud de France in February – aged 21 years and five months – and also won the biggest title of his career to date at the Canadian Open – aged 21 years and 11 months.

4. Ben Shelton – 21 years and 13 days

After his breakthrough last year, Ben Shelton upped his game in 2023 as he reached the quarter-final of the Australian Open and the semi-final of the US Open.

But bigger and better things followed at the Tokyo Open in October as he won his maiden ATP Tour singles title at the ATP 500 event just over a week after turning 21.

3. Holger Rune – 19 and 11 months

One of only three teenagers on the list, Holger Rune won his only title of the 2023 season on April 23 – just six days before he turned 20.

The Dane also finished runner-up at the Monte Carlo Masters – also before his 20th birthday – and the Italian Open in May.

2. Carlos Alcaraz – 19 years and nine months

Back in 2021, Carlos Alcaraz won his maiden title as an 18-year-old at the Croatia Open.

He won three titles in 2023 before he turned 20 with the first one coming at the Argentina Open in February when he defeated Cameron Norrie in the final. The Spaniard also won the Indian Wells Masters and the Barcelona Open before his birthday on May 5.

1. Arthur Fils – 18 years and 11 months

Arthur Fils was the youngest champion on the ATP Tour in 2023 by some distance as he claimed his maiden singles trophy at the ATP 250 Lyon Open in February – just weeks before his 19th birthday.

The Frenchman, who finished runner-up at the Next Gen ATP Finals, was one of the biggest risers in the rankings over the past 12 months as was the biggest jumper into the top 50. He finished 2022 at No 249 and is currently at No 36 in the ATP Rankings.

In case you were wondering, Fils is well short of the all-time record as American Aaron Krickstein was 16 years and two months when he won his first title in 1983.
