    Finally! Auger-Aliassime [9], potentially one of the best players in history born in the 00s, claimed his maiden title in the city where he’d made his ATP debut four years ago. The 21-year-old Canadian began the most important match of his career thus far with a 0-8 record in the ATP finals (0-16 in sets!), against a player who had defeated him five straight times. It was a real challenge, Auger managed to break in the opening game though, and controlled the entire process. “I have a lot of good memories playing here in front of you, so thank you for making it a special week for me that I will remember for the rest of my life,” Auger said. “It is the happiest day of my career and hopefully it is the first of many to come.” The two years older Tsitispas [4] drops to 7-11 record in finals, including 0-8 at the ATP 500 level (nevertheless he has won two more prestigious titles: Masters ’19 and Monte Carlo ’21).

    Auger’s route to his maiden title (72nd main-level event):
    1 Egor Gerasimov 3-6, 6-2, 6-2
    2 Andy Murray 6-3, 6-4
    Q Cameron Norrie 7-5, 7-6(4)
    S Andrey Rublev 6-7(5), 6-4, 6-2
    W Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4, 6-2

    # Auger trailed *3:4 in 2nd set vs Rublev, six points away from defeat in the following game

    Serve & volley: Auger 0, Tsitsipas 0/1
