    Points won by each set: | 30-22, 34-25 |
    Points won directly behind the serve:
    30 % Rublev – 15 of 50
    36 % Sonego – 22 of 61

    Rublev [8] is a title leader of 2020 after claiming his 5th title of the season in the Austrian capital not dropping a service game (BPs saved in just two games). The draw was one of the best in the tournament history (6 of Top 10 players; Schwartzman withdrew), yet a lucky loser advanced to the final – Sonego [42] played a good match overall, but lost his serve at 2-all and 4-all in respective sets. He had a double break point at 4:5 in the opener, but the Russian responded to it with one of his five very aggressive attacks to the net behind the serve (one smash and four drive-volleys). “This tournament is really special for me because my grandma was also Austrian, so I have Austrian blood,” Rublev said during the trophy ceremony. “It’s a really special title for me.”

    Rublev’s route to his 7th title:
    1 Norbert Gombos 6-3, 6-2
    2 Jannik Sinner 2-1 ret.
    Q Dominic Thiem 7-6(5), 6-2
    S Kevin Anderson 6-4, 4-1 ret.
    W Lorenzo Sonego 6-4, 6-4

    Serve & volley: Rublev 5/5, Sonego 1/1

    The previous title passing two matches without winning match points, experienced Wawrinka at Australian Open ’14
