Canadian Denis Shapovalov has his first ATP Tour title.

The fourth seede from Richmond Hill, captured the Stockholm Open on Sunday with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Serbian Filip Krajinovic.

Not only was it his first ATP title, but he becomes the first Canadian men’s singles winner on tour since Milos Raonic of Thornhill in Brisbane in January 2016.

It marked the first time Shapovalov had ever faced the No. 60-ranked Krajinovic.

The Canadian was ranked No. 34 in the world prior to the event, but will crack the top 30 with this result for the first time since July.
