Greek tennis champion Stefanos Tsitsipas has claimed his first ATP title after defatting Ernests Gulbis in the Stockholm final in straight sets (6-4, 6-4).

The rising star had lost the two previous finals he had qualified for this year but there was nothing stopping him on Sunday, Tsitsipas sealing the title in 81 minutes.
A tight opening set saw both men serve superbly with breakpoints at a premium. Gulbis missed his in the first game, but Tsitsipas made no mistake when his opportunity came at 5-4.
The second followed a similar trend with neither man able to fashion an opening in the first nine games.
Finally, there was a chink of light for Tsitsipas, though, as Gulbis was broken to love to leave his 20-year-old opponent celebrating a first tournament title.
