Current Greek No.1 tennis player Stefanos Tsitsipas is attempting his second ATP Challenger series title in two months, in Sunday’s final in Brest, France.
The 19-year-old Greek tennis sensation will play against Corentin Moutet in the final of the €106,500 Open Brest Arena Crédit Agricole in Brittany.
Tsitsipas knocked off second seed Marius Copil of Romania 7-6, 7-6. The 19-year-old from Greece sent down seven aces, winning 83% of his first service points to prevail after one hour and 38 minutes.
“It was a tough match today,” Tsitsipas said. “I managed to keep calm in the tie-breaks, served well and was aggressive. I feel that I have the support of the crowd since the beginning of the week and it helps me to play well.”
Tsitsipas and Moutet will meet for the second time. He could lift his second Challenger trophy following his triumph in Genova earlier this season, where he beat Spanish veteran Guillermo Garcia-López 7-5, 7-6.
