Jannik Sinner it is one of the few certainties of this 2021.
The blue confirms his excellent moment and flies to the semifinals in the ATP 500 tournament in Barcelona beating the number 7 in the world Andrey Rublev with the score of 6-2, 7-6. The company is tale since the Russian is one of the best players in the whole ATP circuit, is fresh from the final in Monte Carlo (later lost to Tsitsipas) and has already won 26 games in 2021.
This is the fourth victory for the South Tyrolean against a Top 10 player dopo Goffin, Zverev e Tsitsipas and hits the sixth semifinal of his career, the third of the season, the first on red.
Sinner dominates, as evidenced by the score the first set. In the second he struggled a little harder, as he himself admitted in some post-game point blank statements.
Come on a break at the end of the second at the end he got victory in the set and the match at tie – break. Despite some physical problems, with Rublev very nervous (he self-hit with his racket) the blue has maintained the tranquility to complete the challenge of the day.
For the Italian this is the 18th match won in 2021 which launches him in the first semifinal of an ATP 500 tournament. On Saturday he will face one of Felix Auger-Aliassime (who eliminated Musetti) and Stefanos Tsitsipas, cool winner of Montecarlo.
From Monday, in the meantime, however the semifinal goes, it will climb another position in the ranking, climbing to position number 18: without the various restrictions and the ranking “Frozen” would already be in the top 10.
