Immediately following seven days in hotel quarantine in Seoul, Fritz completed a perfect five-day stretch in Tokyo to claim his third title of a career-defining year. With this, the third seed became the 10th different American singles champion at the ATP 500 event and the first since Pete Sampras in 1996. "[It is] crazy, I don't even think it's set in just how fast the last four or five days have been," said Fritz after the match.
