Jannik Sinner continues his positive path at the US Open 2023, where he reached the 3rd round. About his Italian colleagues, Lorenzo Musetti fell immediately while Matteo Berrettini suffered a serious injury during the match against Rinderknech, withdrawing from the New York Grand Slam.
The images of the video have gone viral and for the tennis player there is the risk that the stop will be serious enough. Sinner is the only Italian to have reached the third round of the tournament and he did so with an excellent performance, winning without any worries in the Italian derby against Lorenzo Sonego, a great friend of his.
In the third round also his countryman Matteo Arnaldi, who will face Cameron Norrie. Challenge without history for Jannik, who dominated every set, and now awaits Stan Wawrinka in the third round: a challenge that promises to be very intriguing anyway.
Sinner: "I think I offered a fantastic performance"
At the press conference, the Italian number one analyzed the match, commenting on the challenge and releasing the following statements: "I think I offered a fantastic performance.
It was a bit windy and it wasn't easy to play but I felt very good. I served with a good first performance and today I knew it was very important. I think the answer worked really well too and these were the major keys to achieving success.
I am very satisfied." Passed the first two rounds without problems and Jannik then continued: "It's important to win, then even better if you succeed in three sets! You have more time to recover and playing early helps the second half because today I still have time to rest and I also have tomorrow's day.
If you play at night it's quite different, you have less time to recover. Winning in about two hours and in this way gives you optimism in view of the next matches. Wawrinka? I have often played with Stan and sometimes we train together.
He is fit and playing great. It will be a very tough challenge. My confidence is growing and I feel fully in the tournament, I'm really happy and I have good sensations."
