With a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Canadian Felix Auger-Aliassime, Stefanos Tsitsipas becomes the first player to win back-to-back titles in Marseille since Sweden’s Thomas Enqvist in 1998.
Despite his slow start to 2020, Tsitsipas has seemingly found form here again at the Open 13. He was so dominant through this tournament that he didn’t drop a set in any match.
As for the Canadian, the loss here in Marseille was a rather disappointing one. In spite of being considered one of the most talented rising stars in the game, Auger-Aliassime has failed to win a single ATP title. Even more disappointing is that this was his second straight finals losing in straight sets. He lost in the Rotterdam finals 2-6, 4-6 last week to Gael Monfils.
Still, many tennis fans continue to believe in Auger-Aliassime because he just hasn’t seemed to find his best tennis in finals yet going 0-5.
After the match, Tsitsipas had kind words for the Canadian saying, “Thank you Felix, thank you so much. The fact that we are able to play and meet each other so much makes the rivalry we both share.”
“I think we’ll face each other many more times and you’ll prove us wrong in the future,” said Tsitsipas. “I feel like you make me a better player and I hope I make you too.”
