Milan | Tsitsipas or De Minaur for the Next Gen title

This year’s Next Gen ATP Finals title will be decided by the two top seeds at this year’s event, namely Stefanos Tsitsipas and Alex de Minaur, who have yet to be beaten this week

It was a rollercoaster match and I got very frustrated with all the breaks of serve I suffered, Stefanos Tstsipas

The top seeded Tsitsipas picked up a hand injury as he battled past last year’s runner-up, the Russian Andrey Rublev in what proved a roller-coaster match, 4-3(3) 3-4(5) 4-0 2-4 4-3(2).

The Greek world number 15 Tsitsipas called for medical treatment after dropping serve in the fifth game of the decider when he angrily demolished the courtside headset that players use to communicate with their coaches.

The injury though, did not prevent him from returning to the fray to sweep to victory and the chance of lifting his second title of the year following his success in Stockholm last month.

“It was a rollercoaster match and I got very frustrated with all the breaks of serve I suffered,” said Tsitsipas, one of the sport’s most improved players of the season.

In Saturday’s final, he will face Australian teenager Alex de Minaur, another youngster who has impressed this season rising from 208 in the world rankings to 31. The 19-year-old, the youngest in the field reached the championship match in the first of the semis with a 3-4(5) 4-1 4-1 3-4(4) 4-2 victory over Spain’s Jaume Munar on his sixth match point after two hours of play.

Like Tsitsipas, he has not been beaten in all his four matches this week and had not dropped his serve during the Round Robin stage.

He revealed after his win, that he had been working on his attitude which was very evident throughout the week.

“That’s been one of the things I’ve really worked on, on my attitude to try and keep calm and collected,” de Minaur said. “All the credit to Jaume. He’s an incredible competitor.

“It’s been an incredible year and I’m just riding this roller-coaster. I couldn’t ask for more right now.”

He said winning the final would be “the cherry on top of an unbelievable season for me”.

The final should be a close run affair.
