Stefanos Tsitsipas beat Mikhail Kukushkin 7-5, 7-6 (5) to win the Open 13 title in Marseille.

Tsitsipas delivered 14 aces but still had to fight off the Kazakhstan native in a second-set tiebreaker to prevail.

Kukushkin had two aces while failing to win his second career title.

"I lost the spark [after the Australian Open] and I was frustrated because it felt like I couldn't find it again," said Tsitsipas. "This week, I can say I am really happy because I felt this hunger back again... I really hope it stays the same because there are many good players out there that play for the same prize."
