What Happened at the 2019 ATP Sofia Open?
Daniil Medvedev showed the early signs of his solid year with a title win at the Sofia Open in 2019 when he defeated Marton Fucovics in the final in straight sets. This was after he had wasted no time in disposing off Gael Monfils, the seventh seed 6-2, 6-4 to make the final.
In some of the other matches, top seeded Karen Khachanov had an opening round bye but went down to Matteo Berrettini in three sets in the second, while Stefanos Tsitsipas, seeded second lost to Monfils in the quarterfinals.
Mirza Basic entered the Sofia Open as a qualifier, having won two matches during that phase to make it to the main draw, and went on to lift the trophy. He defeated another unseeded player, Marius Copil in a hard-fought, three-set final, winning 7-6, 6-7, 6-4. This was his first ever ATP title.
Among the eight seeded players who participated in the tournament, only two made it past the second round. Stan Wawrinka was one of them, seeded one and he was ousted by Basic in the semi-finals. Copil defeated another qualifier Jozef Kovalik in the other semi-final.
Viktor Troicki was the only other seeded player to make it to the quarter-final, where he lost to Wawrinka in straight sets.
