“It’s always difficult to play against Andrey, we had difficult matches earlier. Today there were three sets, and the first two could have ended in his favor, he had so many break points . I managed to serve well in those moments. I tried “I am grateful to everyone who stayed despite the late hour. I always enjoy playing on this field, whatever the time. This is important to me and I’m happy to move on to the next round.

I don’t know how I got back from 1:5 to the tiebreaker. At 1:5 we changed sides, there was a bit of wind and I knew I would have a slight advantage. I tried to hold my serve, go 2:5, then take his serve at least once. I made it twice, it became 4:5 and I served. It was very close, but I like playing in such intense conditions, I try to stay aggressive. I am very happy that today everything worked out in my favor,” Sinner shared during the post-match fight.

Today, January 23, Rublev lost to Sinner with a score of 4:6, 6:7 (5:7), 3:6 in the quarterfinals of the tournament. In the semi-final, the Italian tennis player will play with the first racket in the world, Novak Djokovic.
