Patrick Mouratoglou posted new content on his very active Instagram account and analyzed the match valid for access to the Roland Garros final between Carlos Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner. The well-known coach believes that the Spaniard technically played one of the worst matches of his career and that only mental strength allowed him to get back into the match after a complicated start.

Mouratoglou also acknowledged that a Sinner in total control felt cramps quite early due to suboptimal physical preparation. In fact, the South Tyrolean had to stop before the start of Roland Garros because of a hip problem, skipping the Internazionali BNL d'Italia.

"Alcaraz technically played one of the worst matches of his career and defeated the world number one. The lesson from the match between him and Sinner is that even when things don't work out, you can win.

He was far, far from his level. He didn't feel the ball well or even his legs, he was extremely slow in everything he did because the emotional part was taking over”, Mouratoglou explained. Former American champion Andy Roddick reflected on Carlos Alcaraz vs. Jannik Sinner rivalry.

"Something to acknowledge w Jannik Sinner struggling a bit. Both injured coming in. One w a forearm which means he can still get legwork in. Sinner game time decision coming into RG. Tough to imagine he was able to put in the normal legwork when dealing w a hip issue. Not all injuries act the same," Andy Roddick wrote.

The Italian will soon return to the court and will be among the protagonists of the ATP tournament in Halle, the first tournament he will play as world number one. Jannik will become familiar with the surface and will also play doubles with his friend Hubert Hurkacz.
