Stefanos Tsitsipas picks up first clay title and immediately targets success on grass

Stefanos Tsitsipas celebrating PA

Stefanos Tsitsipas has vowed to target a grass court title next after claiming his first claycourt title in Estoril.

The 20-year-old won the Open 13 Provence title in Marseille last February on an indoor hardcourt, and backed that up with the Stockholm Open title in October.

He can now add a claycourt title to his resume though, after a convincing 6-3, 7-6 (7-4) success over Pablo Cuevas.

“You really have to fight hard and give your soul out on the court,” said Tsitsipas. “This title means a lot to me.

“It’s on clay, it’s one of my preferred surfaces. It’s nice to have completed the clay-hard court title [sweep] that I’ve been fighting for.

“Next is grass, or maybe even more clay-court titles this year, that would be wonderful.”
