Third seed Tsitsipas hit 21 winners and made only 11 unforced errors to win in one hour 36 minutes.  The win was the 23-year-old Greek's eighth ATP title and his first in 11 months as he made the perfect start to the claycourt season.  "No no thinking I would be in the situation I am today," Tsitsipas said.  "I'm very proud of the confidence I have in my game."  "He fought in moments I didn't expect him to fight and produced some incredible winners . I'm sure it was a good result against him."   Tsitsipas joins a list of notable players to have won back-to-back Monte Carlo Masters, including Rafael Nadal, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Thomas Muster and Bjorn Borg.  Tsitsipas, who beat Andrey Rublev in the Monte Carlo final 12 months ago, has now won four clay tournaments in his career.  He is set to clinch the French Open title after losing last year's final at Roland Garros to Novak Djokovic despite leading by two sets.  Davidovich Fokina had beaten world number one Djokovic earlier this week but could not repeat that heroic feat in his first ATP final, losing for the third time in three meetings with Tsitsipas.  "I always thought of being in the final here one day... I hope to be here again next year," said Davidovich Fokina, who also reached the quarter-finals last year before pulling out injured after a set against Tsitsipas.   The world number 46 struck first in the final against Tsitsipas breaking his serve in the third game, but Tsitsipas hit back with a forehandwhich was incredible to equalize the first set at 2-2.  The set lasted into the eighth game, when Tsitsipas broke when Davidovich Fokina hit a backhand into the tramline.  The Greek star finally managed to wrap up the opening set.  World number five Tsitsipas scored two break points in the first game of the second set and took full control of the final when Davidovich Fokina delivered a long-circling baseline .  However, Davidovich Fokina continued to struggle against Tsitsipas, who kept the pressure on the 22-year-old and took break pointsall three to take a 5-4 lead and capitalize on serve opportunities to clinch the title.  Tsitsipas created a tense game, while Davidovich Fokina smashed to extend the game.  The second set went into a tie-break, where Tsitsipas raced to a 5-1 lead with the help of a shot that cut the net and landed on the edge of the sideline.  Davidovich Fokina saved a point but Tsitsipas secured the trophy the second time around with a fine passing shot after some challenging defence.
