Francisco Cerundolo comments on Jannik Sinner retiring Miami quarterfinal

World No. 103 Francisco Cerundolo admits making the Miami Masters semifinal is a life changing moment for him as he hopes to continue his fairytale run and potentially win his first Masters title. On Wednesday, Cerundolo was 4-1 up in the first when Jannik SInner decided to retire the match due to an injury.

After the match, Carundolo revealed he had trained with Sinner in the past few days and didn't notice anything strange. "I've been training with Sinner for the past few days and I hadn't seen anything strange.

It's not the best way, but it means everything to me being in the semifinals. It's a turning point for my life, it changes my perspective," Cerundolo said after the match, per Mario Boccardi.

A dream fortnight for Cerundolo

Just a few days ago, Cerundolo clinched the biggest victory of his life when he stunned former world No.

6 Gael Monfils 6-2 6-3. "It's the victory of my life. I've never hit my forehand that much and I'm happy to have done it that way against such a tough opponent. Today showed that I have the tennis necessary to win these matches.

I played poorly in the previous weeks, but I've been feeling well from the moment I started practicing here. This victory means a lot because on the South American clay court tour I was very close to beating Schwartzman twice, but I didn't know how to stay calm in the decisive moments and I ended up making mistakes when he was returning the balls.

I think those meetings have helped learn how to handle those situations better," Cerundolo said after beating Monfils. Carundolo plays next against the winner of the match between Alexander Zverev and Casper Ruud. Cerundolo won't be a favorite in the Miami semifinal but he has proved that he is more than capable of beating good players.
