Over the weekend, the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas and the British Kyle Edmund won their first ATP World Tour titles in Stockholm and Antwerp, respectively.

These victories offered the fans a glimpse into the future.

Since 2004, when Rafael Nadal “bit” his first trophy, no season has had so many first-time champions. With the triumphs of Tsitsipas and Edmund, the list of players who have lifted a trophy for the first time in 2018 has increased to 13.

Both players have already qualified for the Next Gen ATP Finals in Milan, which will be held from November 6th  to 10th.
