Another step forward by Jannik Sinner in Halle. The World No.1 has won the second consecutive match in three sets and added important minutes in the legs: the goal is to reach the best form a few days before the start of Wimbledon.

"There are some things I can do better ahead of Wimbledon. I’m working hard enough to be more aggressive on the second serve, so it’s normal to hit a few more doubles.

"We try to prepare for Wimbledon" Jannik Sinner told Sky Sport microphones thinking about his game and the Championships.

Some mistakes forced him to play the third set, but he raised the level and folded Fabian Marozsan.

His next opponent will come out of the match between Stefanos Tsitsipas and Jan-Lennard Struff. "I missed some shots in the second set, although I tried to be aggressive. There are things I can do better, as well as the answer.

I’ve only been playing on this surface for a week and I’m glad I can play another game here in Halle. We’ll see how it goes," continued Sinner. "Another dive point? It’s not a specialty.

It was an important point to open the game and then I managed to break his serve. When the ball is not far away, it is quite easy to dive on the grass without getting hurt. Obviously I only dive if I know not to hurt myself.

I still remember the fall of Indian Wells: in that case I was on concrete and I was wrong. Let’s say I’m glad I won that point and that game" . Sinner finally dedicated a thought to the Italian national football team, engaged this evening in the complicated match with Spain at the European Championship.

"I’ll watch the game alone in the room cheering. I wish the team good luck. You have to fight, which is the most important thing. We hope to win". Spain won the match 1-0.
