Stefanos Tsitsipas Beats Dominic Thiem To Clinch Title — ATP Finals

Stefanos Tsitsipas Beats Dominic Thiem To Clinch Title — ATP Finals

Nadal draws level with rivals Djokovic and Roger Federer, who have also finished the year in top spot five times, and moves one behind six-time end-of-year number one Pete Sampras.

"I will't sum up my emotions apt now", acknowledged Tsitsipas. "Holding this trophy right now feels wonderful..." I have never received so much support in a stage like that, ever. But at his age, you have to play more matches to learn more.

"Overall the atmosphere here all week was unbelievable".

At 21, Tsitsipas grew to become the youngest participant to clinch the match's title since Lleyton Hewitt who lifted the trophy in 2001. Three years ago, Tsitsipas was a hitting partner for Thiem in the season-ending event. I have no idea.

"I'm frustrated I couldn't play better", Federer said. "But I'm so relieved by the outstanding performance and the fight I showed today".

Stefanos Tsitsipas, capped a stellar 2019 with the biggest title of his career on Sunday. The Greek played further than his several years against a battling Federer to romp into the remaining and go on his memorable debut at this tournament. "He's the champion and he deserves it 100 per cent", Thiem said. He saved two crash points within the main game nonetheless seemed extra and additional shaky and became as soon as damaged to path 1-2. Very attractive technique, as well.

It should go without saying that any assessment of the future of the men's game should be countered by a look at the end-of-the-year ATP rankings.

"I'm competing against some of the best players in the world and the amount of effort and the amount of work I put [in] every day deserves to have an outcome like this". "I really hope that we're going to have a lot of big matches coming, the two of us".

It is the fourth successive year the tournament has had a first-time victor and incredibly it is just one year since Tsitsipas won the NextGen Finals title for the best up-and-coming players on the men's Tour. Alexander Zverev won this title a year ago.

And with the Big 3 not getting any younger, the clock continues to tick.

"I believe I'm really close on being crowned a Grand Slam champion". But after that, I think that he has a capacity to generate great shots in bad postures, if we talk about technical aspects. I grew up watching Roger here at the ATP Finals and Wimbledon and other finals. If things were best of three it could have been much more different when it comes to grand slam champions over the years.

The performances of Tsitsipas, runner-up Thiem and defending champion Alexander Zverev, who was knocked out in the semifinals, have created the belief that the next generation of talents will continue to close the gap with the main guard in 2020.
