Stefanos Tsitsipas keeps breaking down doors. The historic 2019 ATP Finals champion has taken another step in his meteoric rise by conquering his first ATP Masters 1000.
He is the new Monte Carlo champion, without giving up a set. He closed the week by devastating the executioner of Rafa Nadal, the Russian Andrey Rublev. 6-3 and 6-3 in an hour and eleven minutes from the end of an event without an audience due to the pandemic.
Stunning from start to finish 👏
