Jannik Sinner became the youngest finalist of an ATP Masters 1000 since Rafael Nadal in 2005: he did this season at the Miami Open 2021. The youngest to hit the final in Miami since Novak Djokovic in 2007. With the win against Roberto Bautista Agut, has also become the second Italian in history to hit such a goal on such a stage.
After not taking advantage of a 6-5 advantage during a very complicated first set, Sinner died completely. He canceled, yes, a handful of balls for 0-5 in the second, even approaching 4-4, but he woke up too late. After Denis Kudla, Denis Shapovalov, Milos Raonic, Stefanos Tsitsipas and Andrey Rublev, Hubert Hurkacz completes the weekly masterpiece with a 7-6 (4) 6-4 which he builds in just over ninety minutes of play and obviously becomes the first to add the flag of Poland on the notice board of a Masters 1000 in history.
The third career title will allow Hurkacz to become world no. 16 of the ranking. Sinner will be world no. 22.
