Stefanos Tsitsipas is up to No. 9 in the world after winning his third ATP title in Estoril, while Cristian Garin’s brilliant 2019 has seen him pick up a second career title and climb to the cusp of the top 30.

Tsitsipas picked up his first ATP title on clay at the Millennium Estoril Open in Portugal on Sunday, defeating six-time ATP clay-court champion Pablo Cuevas in straight sets in the final.

Last year, Tsitsipas became the first player from Greece to win an ATP title when he prevailed in Stockholm, while he added a second title indoors after reigning supreme in Marseille earlier this season.

Tsitsipas only dropped one set on his way to the silverware (against David Goffin in the semi-finals), with the 20-year-old overcoming Cuevas by a 6-3 7-6(4) scoreline.

“You really have to fight hard and give your soul out on the court. This title means a lot to me. It's on clay, it's one of my preferred surfaces. It's nice to have completed the clay-hard court title [sweep] that I've been fighting for. Next is grass, or maybe even more clay-court titles this year, that would be wonderful,” Tsitsipas said.

Tsitsipas moves up one spot in the latest ATP rankings to No. 9 in the world, one place off his career-high, while Cuevas, who only got into the Estoril main draw as a lucky loser after losing in qualifying, rises 16 rungs on the rankings ladder to No. 51.

Elsewhere, Garin continued his sensational rise in 2019, capturing his second ATP title in his last three tournaments as he defeated Matteo Berrettini for the BMW Open crown in Munich.

Berrettini himself was on a nine-match winning streak after winning Budapest last week, but the Italian was forced to play two matches in one day on Sunday due to rain, defeating Roberto Bautista Agut in the semi-finals, but he was unable to get over the line against Garin, losing in a deciding set tiebreak.

Garin, who won Houston at the start of the clay season, was ranked No. 95 at the start of February, but now the Chilean finds himself at a career-high mark of No. 33 after his exploits in Munich.

"Of course I need to keep improving. This is just the beginning," Garin said. "This is my first year playing ATP [Tour events full-time], so I need to improve a lot. I've been working hard, so this is a reward from that."

Garin also leads the tour with most match wins on clay so far this season with 19, alongside Guido Pella, who beat him in the Sao Paolo final earlier this year. Berrettini also enjoys a shiny new career-high ranking after his run to the final, with the 23-year-old moving up another six spots to No. 31, which puts him into contention for a seeding at Roland Garros.

Eight of the world’s top 10 are competing at the Madrid Masters this week, including Roger Federer, who is playing on clay for the first time in three years. Alexander Zverev, who was leapfrogged by Federer into the No. 3 ranking after he lost in the quarter-finals of his Munich title defence, now has to try and defend another title this week in Madrid as he desperately tries to find his best tennis.
