An important victory, also from a moral point of view.

Jannik Sinner advances to the US Open thanks to a victory over Brandon Nakashima, who was defeated in four sets (3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-2). For him, after a three-hour battle, there will now be the round of 16 against Belarusian Ilya Ivashka. But most of all the satisfaction of getting back on track after complex months.

“I knew I had to play very well against Nakashima, also because it was the first time I was facing him. And I didn’t really know what I should expect, but I also thank the audience for the atmosphere they created,” were Sinner’s words at the end of the match. “The atmosphere was very balanced, and for that I want to say thank you.

Sinner then added that he also worked a lot on the psychological front: “I chose the punch, because it helps me when the situation is tough. Always staying positive is important, and in training we also do this kind of work to manage emotions. Dinner? After such a night I don’t know if I will eat, but maybe I will indulge in pasta or pizza.”
