Sinner and the reunion with Dimitrov

Jannik Sinner has only dropped a single set at the previous French Open and made it to the quarter-finals relatively easily. The biggest task in this tournament so far awaits the number 2 in the world.

Jannik Sinner versus Grigor Dimitrov: This duel has already happened once this year, namely at the final of the Masters tournament in Miami. Sinner clearly had the upper hand there and won the title in the end. On Tuesday (from 15 p.m. in SportNews-Live ticker) the South Tyrolean and the Bulgarian meet again.

Dimitrov is number 10 in the world and beat the Pole in the round of XNUMX on Sunday Hubert Hurkacz (ATP 8), who caused a scandal, surprisingly in three sentences. The 33-year-old is now in the round of 8 at the French Open for the first time. Dimitrov has had a turbulent career. The highlight: winning the 2017 ATP Finals, which pushed him to number 3 in the world rankings. Dimitrov is considered an eternal talent and is also known as a heartthrob.

As a reminder: If Novak Djokovic does not make it to the final, Sinner will rise to number 1 in the world for the first time from Monday. If the Sesto native reaches the final himself, then Djokovic could also win the French Open and Sinner would be at the top of the rankings. Djokovic was already on the verge of elimination in the round of XNUMX against Francisco Cerundolo on Monday, but still pulled his head out of the loop. The ailing Serb then left his quarter-final start open.
