Jannik Sinner withdraws from Paris-Bercy

It is now è official: Jannik Sinner has è withdrawn from the Paris-Bercy Masters 1000. The Italian was scheduled to face Australia's Alex De Minaur in the round of 16, not before 5 p.m.

Already in the press conference, the Italian tennis number one had expressed his doubts about participating in the round of 16: "It"was not ideal for me to play so late, but I thank the public, even those from home who stayed up. Let’s see how I feel tomorrow".

Alex De Minaur thus advancesì directly to the quarterfinals, where he will face Andrey Rublev of Russia. Sinner will return to the court at the ATP Finals in Turin, scheduled for Nov. 12-19, where he will be the fourth seed.
