Greek youngster Stefanos Tsitsipas moved to the brink of breaking into the world’s top 10 on Monday after winning the second ATP Tour title of his career in Marseille.

The 20-year-old, who stunned Roger Federer en route to the Australian Open semi-finals last month, eased to the title in France without dropping a set, beating Mikhail Kukushkin in Sunday’s final.

Tsitsipas is now ranked 11th, with former US Open champion Marin Cilic next in his sights.

Novak Djokovic remains clear at the rankings summit, despite not playing since winning the Australian Open.
