Jannik Sinner in the finals

Jannik Sinner is preparing to face his final hurdle to glory at the Miami Masters, and that hurdle has a name: Grigor Dimitrov. The South Tyrolean is now one step closer to history, with a chance to capture the title and the No. 2 position in the ATP world rankings.

Dimitrov earned the right to challenge Sinner in the final after a marathon match against Alexander Zverev, which saw the Bulgarian prevail with a score of 6-4, 6(4)-7, 6-4 in more than two and a half hours of play. Dimitrov, who has already beaten Carlos Alcaraz in the tournament, shows he is in good shape and ready to put his opponent in trouble.

It will not be an easy challenge for Sinner, who is preparing to face Dimitrov’s extraordinary tennis. The young Italian praised his next opponent’s game, acknowledging his versatility and dangerousness both from the backcourt and at the net. The balance of direct comparisons between the two players è currently in Sinner’s favor at 2-1, with a win just in Miami in 2023.
