Stefanos Tsitsipas beats Alex de Minaur

The Greek rising star won the ATP Next Gen final in four sets by beating his Australian opponent

Stefanos Tsitsipas achieved yet another victory on the tennis court, this time winning the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) ‘Next Gen’ final, on Saturday.

The Greek tennis player got to beat Australia’s Alex de Minaur in four sets.

In sets up to four games in the under-21 tournament in Milan, Tsitsipas won 2-4 4-1 4-3 (6-3) 4-3 (6-3).

A break was enough for De Minaur, 19, to take the lead but Tsitsipas, 20, levelled before he claimed the third set after a tie-break.

De Minaur saved two match points on his serve in the fourth but lost another tie-break as Tsitsipas won the match.

In October, 20-year-old Tsitsipas brought home Greece’s first ATP crown from the Stockholm Open, after knocking out Latvia’s Ernests Gulbis.

He is the youngest player ranked in the top 20 by the ATP and has a career-high ranking of No 15 in the world.
