Congrats to young Jannik on winning his maiden ATP title at the age of just 19. He becomes the 6th player to win his maiden title this season (joining Humbert, Ruud, Seyboth Wild, Kecmanovic and Millman).

Time seems to be running out for 30 year old Vasek to add his name to the roll of singles title winners. Can he get this monkey off his back before it becomes too late or is he destined to receive The Julien Benneteau Award For Best Player Never To Win A Singles Title?

Great first title for the Sinner, but I'm a bit sad for Vasek. He's played some great tennis, and he's fun to watch when he's not bleeding UEs. I wonder what his tiebreak record is, I suspect it's not pretty.
It's not just tie breakers, he usually struggles on any important points. He has spoken at length about this, and how a sports psychologist has helped him. He is improving. It's too bad he is already near the end of his career, but better late than never. His success in doubles is likely because he has help handling pressure. Although he's crumbled in big moments there too. At the last Olympics, he partnered Nestor, who was 67 years old at the time and getting ready to retire. They made the semis, and probably should have won gold, but Pospisil played poorly in the next two matches, and they didn't even get a medal.

Lol.....Nestor is only 48 (albeit still pre-historic in tennis terms)! :p

Honor to Vasek, he fought and played well. My joy would have been greater against another player, I hope he wins a title!

I just watched the last few games and tiebreak, and he didn't do much wrong. In the tiebreak Sinner hit a super deep return on a decent second serve that forced an error, and then Vasek missed a second serve return. There may have been nerves on match point, but compared to the tiebreak against Gasquet, he played pretty cleanly.
