Andrey Rublev charged back from 5-3 down in the deciding set of the Hamburg Open final to beat Stefanos Tsitsipas on Sunday and head to the French Open with his third title of 2020.

The Russian took the win 6-4, 3-6, 7-5 after Tsitsipas double-faulted on match point — his sixth double-fault of the match. Rublev’s three tour titles this year after wins in Qatar and Adelaide are the most of any player on the tour besides Novak Djokovic.
