World No 14 Rublev also lifted trophies in Qatar and Adelaide this season

Andrey Rublev will arrive at the French Open having secured his third ATP title of the season after the Russian youngster defeated Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-4 3-6 7-5 in the Hamburg European Open final Sunday.

As the year’s last Grand Slam began in Paris, Rublev and Tsitsipas were almost 900kms away in northern Germany, battling for the ATP 500 crown at Am Rothenbaum.

After sharing the first two sets, second seed Tsitsipas looked in control with a 5-3 lead in the decider but was denied the trophy by a late Rublev comeback.

Rublev, who lost last year’s final to Nikoloz Basilashvili, ran away with the last four games of the match to become the first Russian to win the tournament since Nikolay Davydenko in 2009.

World No 14 Rublev also lifted trophies in Qatar and Adelaide this season and only world No 1 Novak Djokovic has won more matches (31) and more trophies (four) this year.
