“There is something about this place. It is where I won my first title and when I got here on the first day this week, I felt that I was playing so much better than before. This place has a special spot in my heart,” Fritz said during the trophy ceremony.

Fritz, who lifted the trophy in Eastbourne in 2019, was not broken all week at the ATP 250 event, where he moved past Thiago Monteiro, Alexander Bublik and Alex de Minaur before defeating Cressy in their first ATP Head2Head meeting.

“My grass season wasn’t going great before I arrived here. But it is great to beat these players and it gives me confidence,” Fritz added. “I played really well all week and going into Wimbledon, I feel good.”

Earlier this season, Fritz won his first ATP Masters 1000 crown in Indian Wells, while he now holds a 25-10 record on the year.

Cressy was trying to become the eighth first-time ATP Tour winner this season, having defeated Reilly Opelka, Daniel Evans, Cameron Norrie and Jack Draper en route to the final.
