Hubert Hurkacz has became Poland's first ATP Masters 1000 champion after taking down 19-year-old Jannik Sinner of Italy in the Miami Open men's singles final.

In the Sunday match, Hurkacz beat Sinner by 7-6(4), 6-4 points.

The 24-year-old Hurkacz needed one hour and 45 minutes to clinch the biggest ATP Tour title of his career, and his second of the year after lifting the trophy at the Delray Beach Open, Xinhua news reports.

"Last year I spent almost half a year here," Hurkacz said. "I was practising in the hottest weather during the spring and summer here, so I think that helped me a lot playing now in Florida, especially in these pretty tough conditions here, because it was a little bit slow here. The wind was blowing from side to side sometimes."
