Sebastian Korda won the first title of his career by beating Italian Marco Cecchinato in the final of the Parma tournament, guest of the organization, for 6-2 and 6-4, in one hour and 15 minutes.
The twenty-year-old Florida tennis player opened his windows after the failed attempt in Delray Beach, his only final so far, which he lost this year to Pole Hubert Hurkacz.
The first American since Sam Querrey in Belgrade 2010 to win a title in European brick dust. And with his triumph in the final, he consolidates himself as the player from his country that has won the most games in 2021 with 16.
Korda closed his participation in Parma in a big way, without losing any set, and thwarted his rival’s attempts to expand his track record, so far limited to titles in Buenos Aires, Umag and Budapest.
In addition, the 20-year-old American, who made it to the Top 50, became the fifth player to take his first title this season, along with Daniel Evans (Melbourne), Juan Manuel Cerúndolo (Córdoba), Alexei Popyrin (Singapore) and Aslan Karatsev (Dubai).
