Sofia Open

Top-seeded Jannik Sinner of Italy won an incredible 25 of 27 first-service points and outlasted French No. 2 seed Gael Monfils to win 6-3, 6-4 Sunday and capture the title in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Sinner, 20, successfully defended his 2020 title at Sofia. He is the event’s first two-time winner.

Monfils put up a strong fight with four aces and 80 percent of his first-service points won (24 of 30). But Sinner saved both break points he faced while breaking Monfils twice.
