I did well mentally, I didn't crack when I was under pressure Stefanos Tsitsipas

The 21-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas successfully defended the title he won 12-months ago with a straightforward victory over teenager Felix Auger-Aliassime.

Tsitsipas eased to a 6-3 6-4 win to leave Auger-Aliassime still waiting for his maiden title after his defeat in a tour final.

Tsitsipas, who had arrived in southern France with a 3-4 losing record this season, enjoyed an emphatic return to form as he clinched his fifth ATP trophy.

“I did well mentally,” said Tsitsipas. “I didn’t crack when I was under pressure.”

Auger-Aliassime, who had beaten Tsitsipas twice in their three previous meetings, was disappointed at not even securing a set in any of the five finals he has now played.

“Playing a final is wonderful, you have to have that perspective, remember that everything is going in the right direction despite everything,” Auger-Aliassime commented.

“It’s heavy, losing every time in the final. There is a little doubt… when will it be my turn?”

World number six Tsitsipas, the ATP Finals champion, broke in the third game and saved three break points to serve out the opening set.

The second seed got the better of a run of three successive breaks in the second set to move 4-3 in front and only dropped one more point on serve.
