Convincing proof of the blue talent while the match lasted.

Coming onto the court with the favor of the odds against Miomir Kecmanovic of Serbia, who had previously eliminated Pablo Carreño Busta, his executioner in Canada, Jannik Sinner won by withdrawal of his opponent when the score read 7-5 3-1 and service for the Italian tennis player.

The reasons for the withdrawal of the Slavic athlete, who had laboriously held his own against the Azzurro in the first set, then closed on 7-5 by Sinner, are still to be clarified. Very effective on serve, the former student of Riccardo Piatti had also started the second set in a great way, immediately flying on 3-0 also thanks to a game, the third, marked by three aces.

Now, in the round of 16, the only Italian remaining in the Cincinnati Masters 1000 tournament draw will face Felix Auger-Aliassime, who in the round of 16 overwhelmed Australian De Minaur with a score of 6-3 6-2.
