ATP roundup: Jannik Sinner, Aslan Karatsev win titles

Tennis: BNP Paribas Open-Day 10

No. 1 seed Jannik Sinner of Italy did not lose a set all week, capping his march to the European Open title Sunday with a 6-2, 6-2 victory against No. 2 seed Diego Schwartzman of Argentina in Antwerp, Belgium.

Sinner, 20, became the youngest player to win five ATP Tour-level trophies since 19-year-old Novak Djokovic won his fifth title in 2007. Sinner saved both break points he faced, lost only two first-serve points (21 of 23) and broke Schwartzman four times in the 76-minute triumph.

Sinner will climb to 10th place on Monday in the FedEx ATP Race to Turin as he looks to make the Nitto ATP Finals. He will trail Hubert Hurkacz of Poland by 110 points for the final qualifying spot, per ATPTour.com.

Karatsev did not drop a set en route to his second tour-level title. He became the 10th different Russian to win the tournament in its 31-year history.

Karatsev, 28, won 92 percent (24 of 26) of his first-serve points and saved the only break point he faced against Cilic, the 2014 and 2015 Moscow champion.
