Jannik Sinner with a historic opportunity

Jannik Sinner will meet Daniil Medvedev in the semi-finals of the ATP 1000 tournament in Miami on Friday. It will be a hot dance - and Sinner also has extra motivation.

Jannik Sinner and Daniil Medvedev will duel on Friday from 20 p.m. (CET). It's about nothing less than reaching the finals of the tournament in Miami. But there is even more at stake for the man from Sexten: He could appear in second place in the world rankings from Monday.

This makes this possible Defeat of currently second-placed Carlos Alcaraz, who was knocked out of the tournament by Grigor Dimitrov. Sinner now has the chance to become the new number two in the world. But to do that he has to win the tournament in Miami. Should he defeat Medvedev on Friday, he would face Grigor Dimitrov or Alexander Zverev in a possible final, who face each other in the other semi-final.

The balance sheet speaks against Sinner, but the current form speaks for him

Sinner and Medvedev will face each other for the 11th time on Friday. The record in ten games so far is 6:4 for the Russian. But be careful: the last four duels all went to the Sesto tennis professional. The last time the two dueled was in the final of the Australian Open. At that time, Sinner made up for a 0-2 set deficit and won his first Grand Slam.

Sinner also won the finals of the tournaments in Beijing (October 4, 2023) and Vienna (October 29, 2023) against Medvedev. So it's going to be a very hot dance in Miami, and not just because of the high temperatures and humidity. From 20 p.m SportNews Follow the game with a live ticker so you don't miss anything.
