No. 1 Jannik Sinner wins Halle Open for first grass-court title

Italy’s Jannik Sinner won his first grass-court title by edging his doubles partner Hubert Hurkacz 7-6 (8), 7-6 (2) in the Halle Open final on Sunday.

The win marks the 22-year-old Australian Open champion’s 14th career singles title.

Neither player could break serve and both sets went to tiebreaks in which top seed Sinner prevailed against the fifth-seeded Pole.

World No. 1 Sinner is preparing for Wimbledon, where he reached the semifinals last year. The Grand Slam tournament starts on July 1.
