Paolo Bertolucci warns Jannik Sinner: what happens

Jannik Sinner beat the Serbian Laslo Djere in two sets in the first round of the Masters 1000 in Miami (6-4 6-2). A non-prohibitive commitment for the 21-year-old, who sees his return to the top 10 ever closer. On the horizon many already see the possible remake of the challenge with Carlos Alcaraz, whose battles fascinate everyone.

This is the opinion of Paolo Bertolucci, a former tennis player now a television commentator, who says he is fascinated by a possible new chapter between the two young talents: "I read of a probable rematch between Sinner and Alcaraz.

I'd like it too. Only that first ours should overcome Dimitrov, Rublev and Ruud." But first, as the former champion from Forte dei Marmi suggests, Jannik will have to overcome competition from several top-level opponents, first of all Grigor Dimitrov, who yesterday liquidated Jan Lennard Struff.

If he passes the Bulgarian on his way, hypothetically there would be two other top 10, like the Russian and the Norwegian.

The Spaniard could find players like Dusan Lajovic, Tommy Paul and one between Taylor Fritz and Holger Rune in his path. Sinner, having put aside a few too many physical ailments, is finally finding continuity in his game, expressing an excellent level that bodes well for all his fans in view of the rest of the season.

There are only 4 defeats of the season for Italian tennis player. Almost exclusively come against opponents positioned better in the standings. Stefanos Tsitsipas at the Australian Open, Daniil Medvedev in the final in Rotterdam and most recently against Alcaraz in the semifinal at Indian Wells.

With the exception of the stop against Sebastian Korda in the ATP 250 in Adelaide. Two years ago the South Tyrolean reached his first 1000m final in Florida, but lost in the final to his friend Hubert Hurkacz. A wound that has not yet completely healed. Since then the blue has not been able to reach a final in this category.
