Andy Murray is back in style! 5 months after a tearful press conference in which he said he might never play again because of recurring injuries, Andy Murray made a magnificent comeback at Queen’s last week: he teamed up with Feliciano Lopez to capture the doubles trophy. Lopez also took the singles crown, beating Gilles Simon in the final.

Since January the Scot has a new clothing sponsor: three-year-old British startup Castore. The financial terms of the partnership have not been released, but according to the Financial Times the deal has four elements: appearance fees for playing while wearing Castore kit, performance-related bonuses, an undisclosed percentage of shares in Castore and advising its board, and a percentage of royalties for tennis gear branded with Sir Andy’s name. 

Castore’s Queen’s capsule is available online.

Stefanos Tsitsipas, Estoril Open 2019

Third career title, his first on clay for Stefanos Tsitsipas, who defeated Pablo Cuevas 6-3 7-6.

This title means a lot to me. It’s on clay, it’s one of my preferred surfaces. It’s nice to have completed the clay-hard court title [sweep] that I’ve been fighting for. Next is grass, or maybe even more clay-court titles this year, that would be wonderful”

Stefanos Tsitsipas, Estoril Open 2019

It has been much more difficult than expected for Tsitsipas who had to fight to get past world number 214 Joao Domingues (7-6 6-4) and advance to the Estoril semifinals for the second year in a row.
Kudos to the 25-year old Portuguese who had a fantastic week with wins over Elias Ymer and Filippo Baldi in the qualifying draw and then Alex De Minaur and John Millman in the main draw.

Tsitsipas will face David Goffin for a place in the final. Goffin, who had a 7-9 record this year before entering the tournament, rallied from a set down to outlast Malek Jaziri 4-6 7-6 6-2.
Goffin and Tsitsipas already met 5 times with the Greek leading their head to head by 3 wins to 2. But the Belgian won their one match played on clay, last year in Monte Carlo. It should be an exciting match!

In the other semifinal, qualifier Alejandro Davidovich Fokina will face lucky-loser Pablo Cuevas.
The 19 yr old Spaniard, who had never won an ATP match before this week, beat Taylor Fritz, Jérémy Chardy and Gaël Monfils (in a spectacular 6-7 7-5 6-4 battle) to reach the last 4. His opponent is much more experienced: Cuevas will be playing his third semifinal of the year after Cordoba and Rio. In the quarterfinals he defeated last year’s finalist Frances Tiafoe 6-0 6-7 6-2.
