In Montpellier at the Open Sud de France Sunday title match, 2nd-seeded Jannik Sinner got through big-serving American Maxime Cressy 7-6(7-3), 6-3.

Sinner was paced by his serve which he never lost, saving all three break points faced. The Italian finished with four aces, won 36/41 (88%) first serves, 13/20 (65%) on second serves and was 1 of 4 on break chances.

“To be honest, the first key was to hold the serve. In the tiebreak I knew he may miss something. I tried to keep my serve, which I have done, so I am very happy about the first set,” Sinner said on court. “The second set was a little bit different. I had a couple of good chances but he then served very well. I am very happy I broke him here and then I served very well at the end of match.”

Sinner authored the sole break of the match in the eighth game of the second set for 5-3. Then served it out winning the last 3 games of the contest.

The 51st-ranked Cressy connected 10 aces, had six doubles, won 30/38 (79%) first serve points, 12/24 (50%) on second serves.

Sinner captures his 7th career title. This was his 8th career final. He’s now 7-1 in ATP finals. Cressy was seeking his 2nd career title. This was his 4th career final.
