Jannik Sinner does not betray on debut in Rome

Good start for Jannik Sinner at the Internazionali d’Italia in Rome. The South Tyrolean tennis player beat Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis in two sets with 6-1, 6-4 scores in less than one hour and twenty minutes of play.

After getting off to a rocket start in the first set, which he won 6-1 in less than half an hour, the Azure had a few more headaches in the second set as the Australian tried to fight back by improving on serve. The break of the San Candido athlete in the seventh game in any case closed the match. Important signs especially on serve for Sinner, who seemed very solid and conceded very little.

In the next round Sinner will face the winner of the match between Russia’s Shevchenko and Argentina’s Baez.
