Stefanos Tsitsipas picks up first clay title and immediately targets success on grass
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.
1⃣st title on clay
2⃣nd title of 2019
3⃣rd career title
Just another day in the office for @StefTsitsipas 👏

“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.”
