Bertolucci explains what betrayed Jannik Sinner

Jannik Sinner succumbed to Carlos Alcaraz in five sets after four intense hours of play at Roland Garros. The tennis player from Murcia è seemed to have more than the South Tyrolean especially in the fifth set, and reached his first career final in the Parisian tournament.

Former Italian tennis player Paolo Bertolucci with a post on X pointed the finger at what betrayed Sinner: "He yields only after 4 hours Jannik Sinner. In the long run, the weeks of stop affected the match".

Sinner had to miss the Rome tournament because of a hip problem, which forced him to sit out without doing physical work for at least a week. Alcaraz also had physical problems before the Paris tournament, but the arm trouble did not prevent him from doing normal physical activity, unlike Jannik.

"On the eve of Paris Jannik was not sure to go soì ahead, and Alcaraz soì took advantage of the best condition", he later told Gazzetta dello Sport Bertolucci.
