In the Race, in fact, Sinner is always in first position, followed by the Russian Daniil Medvedev and the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz. The three are now involved in the final stages of the Miami Open: winning the title would be of great value for each of them, also considering the current gaps in the world ranking.

The Italian will have to fight quite a bit to eliminate his direct opponents, especially considering how he has not yet managed to play his best tennis in Florida.
