MILAN — Top-seeded Stefanos Tsitsipas recovered from a set down to beat Australian teenager Alex de Minaur and win the second edition of the Next Gen Finals on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Greek, who had been the alternate last year, prevailed 2-4, 4-1, 4-3 (3), 4-3 (3).

De Minaur, who was seeded second, saved two match points at the end of the sixth game of the final set to force a tiebreak.

However, Tsitsipas secured the victory—and the title—at his next opportunity, falling onto his back in celebration after De Minaur hit a forehand long.

''It feels great,'' world No. 15 Tsitsipas said. ''I had a chance twice to win the match, but remained calm.''

De Minaur has climbed more than 170 ranking spots since December, up to No. 31.
