Christian Garin is the latest player to join the ATP Tour title-winning circle after he beat Casper Ruud to the U.S. Men’s Clay Court Championship trophy.
The 22-year-old won his maiden ATP trophy with a 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 6-3 victory over Ruud as he became the first Chilean to win a singles title since Fernando Gonzalez in Vina del Mar in 2009.

The titanic battle lasted two hours and 30 minutes and the crucial break of the match came in game six of the deciding set when Garin broke to go 4-2 up.
“It was a really intense match today. I think what I did well was to keep playing my game throughout the match,” the Chilean said.
“Of course, now I want more, so I have to keep working hard and improving every day.”
