Jannik Sinner demolishes Daniil Medvedev to reach Miami Open final

ATP Miami

Jannik Sinner produced a stunning performance to demolish the defending champion, Daniil Medvedev, and reach the Miami Open final.

It was a rematch of the Australian Open final, which Medvedev led by two sets to love before Sinner battled back to claim his first grand slam title. This was nothing like as close, though, with Sinner storming to a 6-1, 6-2 victory in just 69 minutes to reverse the result of last year’s final.

The 22-year-old Italian lost his only match of the season so far to Carlos Alcaraz in the semi-finals in Indian Wells two weeks ago but has been dominant in Florida.

Serena Williams was among the crowd, and some fans at Hard Rock Stadium jeered Medvedev late in the second set after two wild errors, with the Russian completely outplayed by his opponent.

Sinner, who can overtake Alcaraz as world No 2 by winning the title, said on Sky Sports: “I felt great on court today. I served very well, especially in important moments. I handled the situation well in the beginning of each set. He had some break chances, if he makes them, it’s already much different.
