Hubert Hurkacz does a favor for his friend Jannik Sinner

Hubert Hurkacz wins the Shanghai Masters 1000 and does Jannik Sinner a favor. The Polish tennis player è won in a hard-fought final against Russian Andrey Rublev, bowing out in the third set on a tie break at the end of a battle that lasted more than two hours.

Hurkacz, who won his seventh career tournament and second Masters 1000, è won by the scores of 3-6, 6-3, 6-7 (8-10).

Thanks to this victory, the Polish player gained as many as 6 positions in the Atp rankings, and è jumped to 11th place.

And smiling è is also our Jannik Sinner, a great friend of Hurkacz, who has thus maintained the fourth position in the Atp ranking just ahead of Rublev (the gap is 200 points): the Azzurro hopes to remain fourth ahead of the last Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy and the Atp Finals scheduled in Turin. And staying in the Top 4 would also theoretically ease the path to the Australian Open scheduled for early next year.
