Marton Fucsovics has claimed his second career title on the ATP Tour by winning the Tiriac Open in Bucharest, an ATP 250 Tour tournament, which took place for the first time since 2016. The 32-year-old Hungarian defeated No. 5 seed Mariano Navone of Argentina 6-4, 7-5 in Sunday’s singles final

Fucsovics beat three of the top five seeds en route to the title. The World No. 82 capitalized on five of his eight break-point chances and won 54 per cent of the total points played to prevail after two hours and six minutes.

“It feels really good. It’s been a long time since I’ve won an ATP 250 tournament, so it’s a great feeling,” Fucsovics said. “I was working really hard for it. Today was a tough one, but I was fighting until the end.”

Fucsovics lifted his maiden trophy at the Geneva Open in Switzerland when he became the first Hungarian tour-level titlist since Balazs Taroczy at Hilversum in 1982. He earned € 88,125 in prize money as well as 250 ATP Ranking points.

“At some point, I felt like playing at home. Thanks for everyone coming out and supporting me, supporting us. Thank you,” Fucsovics said.
