Stefanos Tsitispas wins the European Championships U18 in Klosters
Stefanos Tstitsipas has made history for Greece being the first ever player to claim gold for his country as he claimed the singles titles at the European 18 & Under Championships, which was celebrated for a 20th time in Klosters, Switzerland.
Stefanos Tsitsipas was well on his way to earning the title in a high-level match when at 7-6, 5-3, 30-0 he was two points away from glory. A well-deserved glory, as the tall Greek proved worthy of his number one seeding and ITF ranking at all times, he was clearly the best player in the draw. At this score, his opponent Corentin Moutet was unhappy with the chair umpire’s decision not to check a mark and decided to shake his hand before completion of the match, handing over the victory to Tsitsipas.
