Stefanos Tsitsipas and Feliciano Lopez conquer Acapulco

Greece's Stefanos Tsitsipas won his first doubles title after he and Feliciano Lopez defeated Marcelo Arevalo and Jean-Julien Rojer 7-5 6-4 in the Acapulco doubles final.

It was an all-around solid event from the doubles pair who played for the first time together. Tsisipas and Lopez grew close during last years Laver Cup with the Greek player admiring the veteran's love for tennis and his longevity.

The Spaniard is now a six-time ATP Tour doubles champion, improving his record to 6-6 in finals. Tsitsipas levels at 1-1 after defeat in the 2019 Miami final with partner Wesley Koolhof.

Tsitsipas said:

“It will give me the confidence to win this title here in Acapulco. We had a lot of fun with Feliciano playing in front of many Mexican fans this week. We plan to team up again in the future.”

Lopez said: “It was at the Laver Cup that we spoke about playing some doubles together. We did well in Vienna losing to the Colombians and here we won our first title together. I just love playing in Mexico.”
