Jannik Sinner, the point

As Jannik Sinner continues his course at J Medical in Turin, the wait grows on whether or not the South Tyrolean will be able to participate in Roland Garros after missing the Internazionali d'Italia being held in Rome due to a hip problem.

For now, the only news is that Darren Cahill, Sinner&#39s staff supervisor of excellence, is on his way to Turin itself and will join the team. A photo on social media, with racket and shoes alongside suitcase and duffel bag, clarified his position.

Meanwhile, Daniil Medvedev’s Internazionali d'Italia ended in the round of 16. The Russian tennis player, world No. 4, è was soundly defeated in two sets by Tommy Paul of the United States, who è qualified for the quarterfinals of the Rome Masters 1000. Medvedev, who was very unloaded after the tough match he won against Medjedovic on Monday evening, succumbed sharply with a score of 6-1, 6-4 against the American, who in the next round will face Poland's Hurkacz, world number 7.

Medvedev’s untimely elimination excludes the Russian from the race for world number one at Roland Garros: in fact, the Muscovite after this defeat will no longer be able to reach the top of the rankings at the end of the Paris Slam scheduled for late May. Thus, the only one able to undermine Novak Djokovic from the throne remains Jannik Sinner. The Azure will be able to become world number one even without participating in the tournament if the Serbian champion does not reach the Roland Garros final.
