A not-so-easy victory, but one that can affect his growth path.

Jannik Sinner applauds Lorenzo Sonego after beating him in three sets at the ATP tournament in Halle, earning him the quarterfinals. On the German grass, the match ended with the scores of 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, and the South Tyrolean emphasized the importance of having been able to react even in the most difficult stages of the match.

“For sure it was a complicated match,” Sinner admitted in the heat. “Both he and I in the first set had several chances. I then in the tie-break made some mistakes, but when you play on grass it can happen. It is a surface on which it is never easy to play. However, I managed to react, especially from a psychological point of view.”

“It seems to me that the work done was good, also because facing Sonego is always quite complicated,” added Sinner. “The matches I played these days lasted many hours, but I’m glad it worked out this way. I’ve been making a lot more plays this way, and my hope is that this will boost my confidence for the upcoming matches.”

Now Sinner in the quarterfinals will meet Kazakhstan’s Alexander Bublik, fresh off a victory over Germany’s Jan-Lennard Struff.
