Stefanos Tsitsipas wins ATP Finals title: Greek defeats Dominic Thiem in three sets at The O2





























Stefanos Tsitsipas has won the ATP Finals after beating Dominic Thiem in a thrilling final at The O2 Arena.

The 21-year-old suffered an early setback after losing the first-set tie-break. But the Greek youngster channelled his frustration into his game, bouncing back to win the second in just 29 minutes and force a deciding set.


His phenomenal serving showed he would be difficult to beat and when the match went to a final set-tiebreak, he held his nerve to seal a 6-7, 2-6, 7-6 success in two hours and 35 minutes to win the title on his debut.


By doing so, he becomes the first player from his nation to win the tournament and the youngest champion since Lleyton Hewitt in 2001.


After a full week of packed crowds and dramatic action, The O2 arena wasn't close to being at capacity and the lack of a top-three player in the showpiece fixture was probably to blame. But these were two players who could soon be Grand Slam winners and it promised to be an intriguing battle.

Neither player had won a title that held the same significance as this, although Thiem - twice a Grand Slam finalist - was no stranger to the pressure. The pair are close off and on the court, but both players pledged to put their friendship to one side as they prepared to go at it hammer and tongs.


Tsitsipas showed just how strong he was going into the semi-finals by winning his first two matches and, having already qualified, took Rafael Nadal all the way in a three-hour marathon.

But Thiem's confidence would have been sky high, having overcome Federer, Djokovic and last year's champion Alexander Zverev on his route to the final.

Thiem looked a little nervous, making errors from the net that only come from a mental block and found himself a break point down. But the Austrian fought back to deny Tsitsipas an early advantage.

Tsitsipas was the master of saving break points and he had to put his abilities to the test when Thiem earned two at 3-3. Sure enough, he lived up to the billing, fighting with a mixture of grit and class to stay on serve.


In the next game, it was Thiem's turn to prove his resilience. Tsitsipas had the double-breakpoint opportunity this time, but some outstanding work - with a volley at full-stretch - at the net saved his skin.With nothing in it, there was no real surprise when the players took it to a tie-break. Even then, sudden death was needed at 6-6. But when Tsitsipas made a colossal blunder on the backhand, Thiem took full advantage and wrapped up the first set after 63 minutes.


For the first time, Tsitsipas looked frustrated. But crucially, he managed to channel it into his game and began his fightback immediately, taking a double break inside the first 13 minutes on his way to a 4-0 lead in the second set.

Tsitsipas was looking utterly dominant and didn't drop a point on his serve until the final game, and only two in the entire set, as he forced a deciding set.

The 21-year-old certainly had the momentum but there was a feeling Thiem was holding back, conserving his energy for the final set after conceding the early double break.


He had to keep his nerve to avoid a similar occurrence in the second set as a determined Tsitsipas earned two early break points. But Thiem was adamant he wouldn't let it slip this time, recovering by using the power of his serve to squeeze errors out of Tsitsipas.

Thiem showed an admirable sense of courage to snatch back the break and take three games in a row as the momentum swung in his favour.

But Tsitsipas rediscovered his composure, taking the lead in some exceptional rallies on display and brought it back to 4-4. Thiem served impeccably to lead 5-4, though, to throw the pressure right back onto the young Athenian's shoulders.


There was very few signs of him losing his nerve and it was perhaps fitting that an extremely tight contest went to a final-set tiebreak.

Thiem fought back from 4-1 down to level the tiebreak but made two crucial errors on the forehand and he knew the game was up. Tsitsipas had two serves left and making them both would see him triumph. An error from Thiem. Two match points. First serve? Out. Second serve? In. Thiem, with a rush of blood, strikes long and the Greek collapses to the floor. The crowd had got their champion after a marathon match in London and his name was Stefanos.

Gandingan Perancis, Pierre-Hugues Herbert dan Nicolas Mahut (kiri) bersama trofi yang dimenangi dalam acara beregu ATP Final di London
Mahut, Herbert jaguh beregu ATP Final


GANDINGAN Perancis, Pierre-Hugues Herbert dan Nicolas Mahut memastikan kejuaraan acara beregu ATP Final menewaskan Raven Klaasen dan Michael Venus 6-3, 6-4, di O2 Arena, London, awal pagi ini.

Kejayaan itu membolehkan mereka menjadi pemain beregu pertama dari Perancis memenangi acara penghujung tahun itu sejak 2005 apabila Michael Llodra dan Fabrice Santoro memenangi kejuaraan itu di Shanghai.

Setahun yang lalu Herbert dan Mahut hanya mengatasi beberapa mata untuk memenangi kejuaraan itu apabila tewas kepada gandingan Amerika, Mike Bryan dan Jack Sock.

Selepas memulakan tahun ini dengan melengkapkan koleksi Grand Slam di Terbuka Australia, gandingan Perancis berharap menamatkannya dengan rentetan kejayaan apabila mereka beraksi di Piala Davis Final minggu depan di Madrid.

Selepas pilihan ketujuh dari Perancis mendahului 3-1 mereka meneruskan penguasaan berdepan gandingan Afrika Selatan/New Zealand itu.

Mereka mengesahkan kejuaraan itu dapat tercicir dari setiap set dan menamatkan musim dengan 18 set kemenangan termasuk memenangi kejuaraan Paris Master bulan ini.

“Terima kasih kerana berkongsi gelanggang dengan saya, kerana terlalu banyak detik menarik dan memberikan saya kegembiraan apabila saya bersama kamu di gelanggang,” kata Herbert.

“Kamu beraksi dalam final yang hebat, terima kasih untuk itu.”

Russia kejutkan juara bertahan Croatia


KAREN Khachanov dan Andrey Rublev membantu Russia mencatat kemenangan 3-0 menewaskan juara bertahan, Croatia dalam perlawanan pembukaan Piala Davis di Madrid, awal pagi ini.

Pemain di ranking 17 dunia, Khachanov menghadiahkan mata penting bagi Russia apabila bangkit sebelum menewaskan pemain nombor satu Croatia, Borna Coric 6-7 (4/7), 6-4, 6-4, selepas Rublev terdahulu menewaskan Borna Gojo 6-3, 6-3.

“Apabila anda bermain bukan saja untuk diri sendiri tetapi untuk negara anda, anda perlu berjuang bersungguh-sungguh,” kata Khachanov.

Kachanov dan Rublev melengkapkan kemenangan bergaya Russia 7-6 (7/3), 6-4 dalam acara beregu menewaskan Ivan Dodig dan Nikola Mektic.

Russia, yang bermain tanpa pemenang tempat kedua Terbuka Amerika Syarikat, Daniil Medvede berikutan kepenatan, bakal menempah tempat ke suku akhir jika menewaskan Sepanyol yang turut diperkuatkan Rafael Nadal pada perlawanan kedua Kumpulan B, esok.

Sebanyak 18 negara beraksi dalam saingan Piala Davis dan dibahagikan kepada enam kumpulan di Caja Magica dengan pemenang peringkat kumpulan dan pasukan di tempat kedua akan layak beraksi dalam pusingan seterusnya sejak format kejohanan dirombak.

Nadal hidupkan peluang Sepanyol


MADRID: Rafael Nadal terus menghidupkan peluang buat Sepanyol dalam perlawanan pembukaan Piala Davis menentang Russia dengan memanfaatkan aksi di laman sendiri untuk menewaskan Karen Khachanov dalam straight set.

Nadal yang menamatkan tahun ini sebagai pemain nombor satu dunia menewaskan Khachanov 6-3, 7-6 (9/7) dan menyamakan kedudukan di dalam Kumpulan B di Madrid.

Sepanyol ketinggalan selepas Roberto Bautista tewas 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7/0) kepada Andrey Rublev. Russia yang menewaskan Croatia Isnin lalu akan layak ke pusingan suku akhir jika menang satu lagi saingan.

Format baharu tahun ini bermakna Piala Davis akan berlangsung di satu tempat sepanjang satu minggu dengan penganjur - antara mereka adalah pemain bola sepak Barcelona Gerard Pique - berharap jadual yang lebih padat akan memulihkan trofi berprestij itu.

“Persekitaran yang menakjubkan,” kata Nadal ketika disoal mengenai kejayaan setakat ini, sambil menambah: Amat sukar untuk memberi jawapan hari ini. Biar saya tunggu sehingga tamat kejohanan untuk pandangan lebih jelas.

“Pandangan saya apa yang negatif adalah kami baru memulakan perlawanan terakhir dan ia pada jam 12.45 pagi. Ini bermakna ia masalah besar untuk kami sebagai pemain dan juga kepada orang ramai yang datang ke stadium juga kerana keesokannya adalah hari bekerja. Ia menjadikan segala-galanya sukar. – AFP

Nadal bantu Sepanyol juarai Piala Davis


MADRID: Tonggak Sepanyol, Rafael Nadal memastikan kejuaraan Piala Davis buat kali keenam buat negaranya awal pagi tadi apabila mereka menumpaskan Kanada 2-0 pada final kejohanan yang diberi nafas baharu itu.

Dengan Raja Felipe menonton aksi di La Caja Magica, Nadal yang berusia 33 tahun menewaskan pemain muda Kanada, Denis Shapovalov 6-3, 7-6 (9/7) untuk memberikan Sepanyol kejuaraan pertama sejak 2011.

Jika ada pemain berhak menjulang trofi lama itu sekali lagi, sudah tentunya Nadal selepas dia bekerja keras sepanjang minggu apabila sering kali beraksi hingga lewat malam untuk memenangi lapan perlawanan.

Namun, dia mengakui akan lebih gembira jika rakan sepasukannya Roberto Bautista Agut memastikan mata kemenangan.

Bautista Agut memberikan tuan rumah permulaan baik apabila mengalahkan Felix Auger-Aliassime 7-6 (7/3), 6-2 selepas kembali ke skuad susulan kematian bapanya.

“Satu minggu yang mengagumkan,” kata Nadal, yang kini menang 29 perlawanan perseorangan Piala Davis berturut-turut sejak 2004. “Orang yang paling penting pastinya Roberto Bautista.”

Selepas mengalahkan Auger-Aliassime, Bautista Agut dipeluk kapten, Sergi Bruguera yang menyaksikan suasana penuh emosi di hujung laungan “Campiones” di sekitar arena itu.

“Ia satu hari yang diimpikan dan semua rakan sepasukan melakukan usaha menakjubkan, terutama Rafa, yang hanya tidur pada jam 3, 4 dan 5 pagi dan hari berikutnya keluar untuk bermain,” kata Bautista Agut. “Ia disebabkan kami warga Sepanyol.” - REUTERS
