ATP Doha - Qatar ExxonMobil Open


Champion: Gael Monfils

After enduring a horror 2017 with injuries, Gael Monfils started 2018 in perfect fashion, capturing his seventh career ATP World Tour title with a 6-2 6-3 victory over rising star Andrey Rublev.

"I'm very happy," said Monfils. "I like this tournament so much. I always come back and I finally got it. So I'm just very happy and very proud.
"It's been a while. I was waiting for that moment to get back in shape. In 2016, I was almost on my top and I had a very good year, finishing at No. 6. I couldn't really defend my chances in 2017. I had a long rest and came back strong in 2018, which was a goal. I wouldn't say I was expecting to win the first tournament, but I'm more than happy that I did."



ATP Pune - Maharashtra Open


Champion: Gilles Simon

A resurgent Gilles Simon added more French flavour to the start of 2018 in title-town as he won the inaugural Maharashtra Open in Pune, backing up a semi-final win over top seed Marin Cilic with a 7-6(4) 6-2 triumph over U.S. Open runner-up Kevin Anderson in the final.




"It was a great match, I think a great performance. I never beat Kevin before so to be able to beat him in the final is a great achievement for me," Simon said. "It’s so hard to feel comfortable against him because he has a huge serve and is really controlling the game, but I managed to stay calm on my side and to just play my game."
"I didn’t have a good season last year," Simon added. "I will try to do better in 2018. I will try to work on it to go back to where I was before."

ATP Brisbane - Brisbane International


Champion: Nick Kyrgios

Canberra-native Nick Kyrgios claimed his fourth career title and first on home soil to kick off his 2018 campaign - he defeated Ryan Harrison 6-4 6-2 to claim the Brisbane International crown. The 22-year old became the second Australian in the tournament's 10-year history to win the title. 



"Coming here, I felt good all week, I felt right at home. Every time I stepped out here you guys gave me such great support."  
"I love playing in front of you guys. Even though sometimes it may not seem that way. But I do."

ATP Auckland - ASB Classic


Champion: Roberto Bautista Agut

It was an outstanding week for Roberto Bautista Agut in Auckland at the ASB Classic, conquering Robin Haase in a three-hour semi-final epic in the semi-finals (described by commentators as one of the best ever matches at the tournament), before taking down World No. 12 Juan Martin del Potro 6-1 4-6 7-5 to clinch his sixth ATP World Tour title.




“It's been a fantastic week for me. I gave everything I have on the court this week,” said Bautista Agut.
“It was an unbelievable match today. I've been fighting a lot on the court... I played two amazing games at the [end] of the match.”

ATP Sydney - Sydney International


Champion: Daniil Medvedev

In another absorbing final just days before the start of the Australian Open, powerful Russian 21-year-old Daniil Medvedev delivered a thunderous performance to end the dream run of 18-year-old Australian teenager Alex de Minaur to capture his maiden ATP title. It was a phenomenal week from Medvedev, who came through qualifying to win seven matches and achieve a personal career milestone.

"It's amazing," Medvedev said. "I'm really happy. I mean, to make it through the qualies, there were so many circumstances. I wanted to go to Auckland, because my girlfriend had a visa to New Zealand, and not even one guy withdrew from Auckland... now I won here. So [it's] just amazing."



Australian Open


Champion: Roger Federer

Twelve months after overcoming Rafael Nadal in a stirring five-set epic, Roger Federer was again pushed to five sets in an Australian Open final - and like last season, the Swiss legend was up to the test, conquering Marin Cilic 6-2 6-7(5) 6-3 3-6 6-1 to win his 20th Grand Slam title.




Federer joined Novak Djokovic and Roy Emerson as the only men to have won the Australian Open six times, while at 36 years, 173 days, he became just the third man in the Open Era to have won four or more Grand Slam crowns after turning 30, following on from Australian legends Rod Laver and Ken Rosewall.

"I'm so happy, it's unbelievable,” an emotional Federer said during the trophy ceremony. “I’m happy it's over now. It's a dream come true and the fairy-tale continues. After the year I had last year, it's incredible."

ATP Montpellier - Open Sud de France


Champion: Lucas Pouille

Lucas Pouille completed another houdini act in Montpellier, saving match points en route to an ATP title for the third time in 10 months as he picked up his fifth-tour level title in the French city.




Pouille saved match points against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in the semi-finals before overcoming three-time champion Richard Gasquet 7-6(2) 6-4 in the final.

"I'm very happy with the win today," said Pouille. "Obviously it was a tough match. Richard is an amazing player and one of the best on tour. The first set was very important and taking the tie-break led me to the victory. I'm very happy with the way I played. It was a great week for me in Montpellier, winning the title in the city where I got my first wild card on tour at 18. It's a great feeling and I'm very happy with this. I hope to come back next year and defend my title."

ATP Quito - Ecuador Open


Champion: Roberto Carballes Baena

Spanish qualifier Roberto Carballes Baena completed a dream week in Quito, conquering his third seeded player of the tournament - compatriot Albert Ramos-Vinolas - 6-3 4-6 6-4 in the Ecuador Open final to take home his first ever ATP World Tour title.




"Many feelings come to my mind and many years of training to achieve this," said Carballes Baena. "I thank my family, my parents in particular. They have been with me since I was little and have been behind me for a long time. We will celebrate this in Spain. "I did not expect this when I came to Quito, but every day I have improved and now I have the title with me. I entered the Top 100 for the first time two years ago, but I needed to have a good ATP World Tour tournament. I did very well during the matches this week and they have been very hard matches, decided by small margins. I hope to enter more ATP tournaments to continue raising my level and win more matches."


ATP Sofia - Diema Xtra Sofia Open


Champion: Mirza Basic

After toppling three-time Grand Slam champion Stan Wawrinka in the semi-finals, Mirza Basic continued his sensational form to lift his first ever ATP title, outlasting Marius Copil 7-6(6) 6-7(4) 6-4 to reign supreme in Sofia.




Basic is now the second player from Bosnia & Herzegovina to win an ATP title after Damir Dzumhur, with the 26-year-old making his top 100 debut as a result of the triumph.

“I’m very happy about everything this week. It’s the first title for me and the first final,” said Basic after the final. “Also, I’m very happy for breaking through after the match yesterday... After this week I will finally get in the Top 100. [After] this win, Sofia will always be my special place.”

ATP Rotterdam


Champion: Roger Federer

Less than a month after capturing his 20th Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, Roger Federer shattered more records in Rotterdam, becoming the oldest ever World No. 1 after making the semi-finals, but the Swiss wasn’t content there, steamrolling Grigor Dimitrov 6-2 6-2 in the final to take home a third ABN AMRO World Tennis Tournament crown.




"It's definitely one of those weeks I will never forget in my life," said Federer. "It's unbelievable to get my 97th title and get back to World No. 1. It's very special.  "I was expecting it to be tough today. Grigor is a great player and a great athlete and he's been playing super well in recent months. I thought that this wasn't going to be the result, but he looked to be struggling a bit and I never looked back. I was able to execute my tennis the way I wanted to. I'm very happy."

ATP Buenos Aires


Champion: Dominic Thiem

Back on his beloved clay, Austrian enforcer Dominic Thiem picked up his first ATP title in almost a year, improving his perfect record at the Argentina Open to 9-0 as he swept through the field without dropping a set, defeating Aljaz Bedene 6-2 6-4 in the final to come away with his second piece of silverware in Buenos Aires.




"I love playing on clay. Last year, I played indoors in Europe and they are nice tournaments too but here I have a better time. I wanted to win the title and any other result would not have been good. It had almost been a year since my last title, so it was time for me to do it again."


ATP New York


Champion: Kevin Anderson

On the back of reaching his first Grand Slam final at the U.S. Open last season, Kevin Anderson has enjoyed more success in the Big Apple, winning his first ATP title since 2015 at the inaugural New York Open, beating Sam Querrey 4-6 6-3 7-6(1) in the final.

Anderson moved up to a career-high ranking of No. 9 courtesy of his triumph.

"Tennis is a tough sport. You play three, four, five matches sometimes to get to the final and if it doesn’t go your way, it’s pretty tough to deal with even though you’ve had a great week,” Anderson said. "I’ve been to quite a few finals. It really means a lot to me to get through today.”



ATP Rio de Janeiro


Champion: Diego Schwartzman

One of the biggest improvers on tour over the last 12 months, Diego Schwartzman captured the biggest title of his career at the ATP 500 Rio Open, easing his way past Fernando Verdasco 6-2 6-3 to secure his first 500-level trophy.

"I never thought before the week that I [was]going to be here with the trophy," said Schwartzman after the match. "It's an amazing week for me. Everything was perfect; every match, every set was perfect for me, playing my best tennis. I am really happy.”


ATP Delray Beach


Champion: Frances Tiafoe

One of the sport’s brightest young talents, 20-year-old American Frances Tiafoe became the first wildcard winner of the Delray Beach Open in its 26-year history, backing up an earlier win over Juan Martin del Potro by beating Peter Gojowczyk 6-1 6-4 for his first career title.

“I was not expecting this this week, especially with how the year started and everything. It's unbelievable. It's obviously a dream to win your first title. Now I got that off my back so that feels pretty good, so early in my career. It's an amazing feeling and I just hope I can get many more as I go along,” Tiafoe said.


ATP Marseille


Champion: Karen Khachanov

Rising Russian younger Karen Khachanov secured the second ATP title of his career at the Open 13 Provence in Marseille, overcoming home favourite Lucas Pouille in a titanic three-set tussle, 7-5 3-6 7-5, to add a second piece of silverware to his trophy cabinet after winning his maiden crown in Chengdu in 2016.

"It is the second title in my career, so I am extremely happy. I just need to keep working and keep going," said Khachanov. "I felt I was playing good here from the first day. It's nice to play on a full court in the final, and I hope to come back next year."


ATP Acapulco


Champion: Juan Martin del Potro

On the back of three consecutive top 10 wins over Dominic Thiem, Alexander Zverev and Kevin Anderson, Juan Martin del Potro won his first ATP 500 title since 2013 as he reigned supreme at the Abierto Mexicano Telcel in Acapulco.

“It's a very special tournament to me. I beat three Top 10 guys in the same tournament, which is very important for myself. I'm so glad to win my 21st title playing in Acapulco,” Del Potro said.


ATP Dubai


Champion: Roberto Bautista Agut

Roberto Bautista Agut claimed the biggest title of his career and his second trophy of 2018 after defeating Lucas Pouille in straight sets, 6-3 6-4, to win the ATP 500 Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships, improving his record in ATP finals to 8-6. Bautista Agut also became the first player outside the top 10 to win the Dubai title.

"That means a lot, to win this trophy," Bautista Agut said. "I think the past winners [in Dubai] are the best tennis players in the era. That makes me so happy."


ATP Sao Paolo


Champion: Fabio Fognini

Fabio Fognini earned the sixth ATP clay title of his career, ending the dream run of Nicolas Jarry in the Brasil Open final in Sao Paolo, coming from behind to emerge triumphant 1-6 6-1 6-4 and become the first European champion at the tournament since 2013.

“This is a great start to the season and very similar to 2014 (started 17-4)," Fognini said. "I worked hard in the off-season and it’s nice to be playing well. I will continue to work and there’s two big tournaments coming up now in Indian Wells and Miami.”


ATP Indian Wells Masters


Champion: Juan Martin del Potro

In arguably the most dramatic final of 2018 so far, Juan Martin del Potro saved three championship points and inflicted the first loss on Roger Federer for the season as he prevailed 6-4 6-7(8) 7-6(2) to win his first ATP Masters 1000 title in stunning fashion in Indian Wells, extending his winning streak after capturing the Acapulco crown from the week before.

“It's so big,” Del Potro said of winning his first Masters 1000 title. “I cannot believe I won this tournament, beating Roger in a great final and level of tennis. We played great tennis today. “I'm No. 6 in the world, I think? Which is so good to me. And I'm excited to keep working... I just want to keep winning titles like this if I can.” 


ATP Miami Masters


Champion: John Isner

John Isner became the oldest first-time ATP Masters 1000 champion in history as he completed a dream tournament to lift his maiden Masters crown by defeating fourth seed Alexander Zverev 6-7(4) 6-4 6-4 in a thrilling final in what was the last ever match played at the Crandon Park Tennis Centre in Key Biscayne.

"To win like that in front of a crowd like that, with that atmosphere, you can't replicate moments like that," said Isner. "It was absolutely amazing. "This tournament has so much history. All the best players have played here thought the years. For Sascha and I to share the court in the last men's singles match ever here at this tournament is amazing. I never thought I would be in this moment considering how I was playing coming into this event."



ATP Houston


Champion: Steve Johnson

One week before his wedding, Steve Johnson had extra reason to celebrate, becoming the first American to win back-to-back Houston titles since Andy Roddick in 2001-02 when he conquered compatriot Tennys Sandgren 7-6(2) 2-6 6-4 to win the third ATP title of his career.

“It means a lot [to win] here. This is one of the best tournaments of the year. You get the atmosphere of the country club, everything that goes with it. The people are awesome, everybody involved with the tournament makes it so special. Always happy to come back here and start my clay-court season,” Johnson said.


ATP Marrakech


Champion: Pablo Andujar

Two months prior to Marrakech, Pablo Andujar was ranked outside the world’s top 1,800 after undergoing three surgeries on his wrist. But rankings don’t matter to class players, and Andujar proved his worth, becoming the lowest-ranked tour-level title winner since Lleyton Hewitt in 1998 when he defeated Kyle Edmund 6-2 6-2 to take home the Marrakech crown as the World No. 355.

"I always believed that I could come back, otherwise I wouldn't have tried," reflected Andujar.


ATP Monte-Carlo Masters


Champion: Rafael Nadal

Playing his first tournament since retiring in the Australian Open quarter-finals in January, Rafael Nadal was back to his intimidating best as he swept aside competition to capture a staggering 11th Monte-Carlo Masters title, winning the tournament without dropping a set, including a 6-3 6-2 victory over Kei Nishikori in the final. The win handed Nadal a record 31st Masters 1000 title and extended his sets won on clay streak to a record 36.

"My true feeling is these kind of things are not going to happen forever, so I just try to enjoy them and to play with the full passion and with the full energy and concentration, full love for the sport until I can," said Nadal. "I know the day to say goodbye is closer than 10 years ago. It is something that I am not worried about, but it is a real thing. So I am just enjoying every day and trying to play with the best attitude possible, to keep being happy playing tennis. That's all.”


ATP Barcelona


Champion: Rafael Nadal

There was no time for rest as Rafael Nadal once again had to emerge triumphant with the title in order to remain World No. 1, but it was the same old story in Barcelona as the Spaniard matched his feats from the previous week in Monte-Carlo and lifted an 11th title at the ATP 500 tournament, dropping just three games as he beat rising star Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-2 6-1 in the final. Nadal extended his winning streak on clay to 19 straight matches and his consecutive sets won to a remarkable 46 in a row.

"It's very difficult to describe how to win 11 titles at one tournament. To win 11 Monte-Carlos and 11 Barcelonas is something I couldn't imagine doing. I'm just enjoying every week and the fact I'm playing in a tournament that I enjoy so much means a lot to me.”


ATP Budapest


Champion: Marco Cecchinato

Marco Cecchinato captured his first ever ATP World Tour title in memorable fashion at the Gazprom Hungarian Open in Budapest, bouncing back from losing in the last round of qualifying to receive a lucky loser entry into the main draw and ride that fortune all the way to a maiden piece of ATP silverware, defeating fellow first-time finalist John Millman 7-5 6-4 in the final.

"I lost Sunday and now I won the tournament. It's amazing for me," Cecchinato said. "Maybe it's a dream, I don't know."
