Paolo Bertolucci: “Jannik Sinner will give us great satisfaction”

The second consecutive semifinal in a Masters 1000 tournament reached by Jannik Sinner at the Miami Open has done nothing but confirm the constant growth of a tennis player willing to work day after day to improve and achieve great goals.

Only Daniil Medvedev and Cameron Norrie, for the moment, have won more matches than the Italian in 2023. The Russian achieved victory number 27 of the season by beating Christopher Eubanks in straight sets; while the British is stuck at 21.



Paolo Bertolucci, in an editorial written for the Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, focused precisely on the future of Sinner. He explained: “Making victories against strong players look simple: that’s the quality of great champions. Sinner demonstrated it in the fantastic ride of just 71 minutes against Andrey Rublev in the round of 16 of the Masters 1000 in Miami.



He reduced the number 7 in the world to impotence, as if giving him just six games without practically ever jeopardizing the technical dominance on the match was the most normal of days. However things go, the two great American tournaments deliver a real and rapidly growing player to the circuit, and to our tennis one who will soon give us great satisfaction.



Not that there were any doubts, because Sinner has been adding something to his game and to his qualities for a couple of years, net of a few physical hitches, at every game.” Sinner could even the score with Norrie in Miami.

Only one success separates him from the 27-year-old. However, the blue will have to compete with Carlos Alcaraz, chasing the Sunshine Double and more determined than ever to confirm his leadership in the standings. The two also challenged each other in the semifinals at Indian Wells and the Spaniard, at the end of a hard-fought first set, didn’t concede any more chances to his rival.




Another important fact that testifies to the progress made by Sinner in recent months concerns the 2023 Race, which will determine the eight players battling it out at the ATP Finals in Turin. The Italian currently occupies the fifth position, but Stefanos Tsitsipas is getting closer and closer. There are in fact 75 points that divide the two in the Live Race to Turin.
