"We all saw an extraordinary Grigor in the semi-final. He played incredible tennis. He has a great physique. He is in great shape. He has the talent to change things on a tennis court with his way of playing. He can stay back, he can come closer. He is very, very good with his hands. He can do whatever he wants," said Sinner at press conference.

The Bulgarian also did not shy away from compliments towards the Italian, who is having an incredible performance in recent months, so much so that he is considered by many to be the strongest tennis player in the world at the moment.

"At the moment Jannik is the best player in the world, clearly. He is a fantastic player, the numbers prove it. He has lost only one match in 2024. But above all Jannik is a great person. I admire him a lot, he is polite and this is thanks to the family and the team. I'm ready, I want to play these matches. It will be a great final," he told.

Sinner vs Dimitrov

Two completely different players, the Italian and the Bulgarian who have already met three times over the last few seasons. The balance leans in favor of Sinner, who won the last two challenges, one in Miami last year, and the last one in Beijing.

The Bulgarian tennis player's only success dates back to Rome, in 2020. If successful, Sinner would win his third title in just 4 tournaments in which he took part.
