Greek Tsitsipas captures first claycourt title in Estoril

Greek youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas’ French Open preparations gathered momentum as he claimed his first clay court title with a 6-3 7-6(4) victory over Pablo Cuevas at the Estoril Open.Top seed Tsitsipas made the most of his Uruguayan opponent’s struggles on the serve to clinch the opening set and grabbed an early break to serve at 4-3 in the second.But the Australian Open semi-finalist suffered a lapse in concentration and was broken for the first time in the contest during a stretch of nine consecutive points won by Cuevas.Cuevas also had a remarkable between-the-legs shot for a point in the second game of the second set. Tsitsipas regained his composure to save a set point in the 10th game before sealing the victory in the tiebreak for his third career title.
