Stefanos Tsitsipas is back in the final. One year after is title at the Open 13 Provence, the Greek beat, in the semifinals the Kazakh Alexander Bublik 7/5 6/3 in 1h08.
Number 2 seed of this 28th edition, Stefanos Tsitsipas, just picked up his 7th consecutive victory on the court of the Palais des Sports. Versus Alexander Bublik, that he was used to playing in juniors, Stefanos Tsitsipas has still not conceded a set since the beginning of this winning streak.
And if he was always ahead, it was not a breeze for the title holder to close off the match. The reason: an unpredictable Bublik who served underarm to save match point, followed by a second serve ace clocked in at 191km/h. This however was not enough to prevent Tsitsipas to go on and win the match.
Stefanos Tsitsipas will play his 10th career final, his second consecutive one in Marseille.
