Tennis: in Los Cabos, surprise Jordan Thompson wins his first ATP title

If this success against the No. 4 seed may seem surprising, the Australian, finalist in 's-Hertogenbosch in 2019 and 2023, had already caused a sensation in the semi-final by dismissing the No. 1 seed, the German Alexander Zverev, in three sets, at the end of a three-hour marathon. Less than 24 hours after this feat, Thompson did not appear to suffer from fatigue, quickly getting the better of his Norwegian opponent, whom he had already beaten once in the first round of Wimbledon in 2021. “It's been a week incredible!”, then exulted the Australian, who had saved three match points in the quarter-finals against the young American Alex Michelsen, after being led 6-0, 3-0.

“It’s been an adventure. I'm almost 30 and I'm lifting a trophy. I thought it would never happen,” commented this rugby fan and former Australian tennis champion Lleyton Hewitt. Saturday evening, against Ruud, Jordan Thompson made a first break in the first set, to lead 4-2, and never let go of the reins of the match.

He just seemed to be caught up a little by the pressure when serving for the match, at 5-4 in the second set. In the decisive game, the Australian was however solid, after taking advantage of a double fault from Casper Ruud, concluding on his serve 7 points to 4. Monday, he will experience the best ranking of his career, which began in 2013, around 32nd place.
