Quarterfinal hit: Sinner can play in prime time

After a day of rest, Jannik Sinner will return to the court on Tuesday. The big stage awaits the Pusterer in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open.

Anyone who wanted to follow Jannik Sinner at the Australian Open had to deal with short nights recently. The Sesto superstar usually played in Melbourne at lunchtime or in the afternoon, which in South Tyrol is the middle of the night. For the quarter-finals, Sinner now gets the big stage Down Under. The game against Andrey Rublev takes place on Tuesday in the night session, i.e. around 20.30:10.30 p.m. local time. This means that the South Tyrolean fans can watch their Jannik around XNUMX a.m.

The match against Rublev will take place in the Rod Laver Arena - the largest stadium at the Australian Open - and will be a very special one, after all, the number 4 in the world (Sinner) will meet number 5 (Rublev). Curious: The Russian has been a world class tennis player for years, but he has never made it further than the quarter-finals at a Grand Slam tournament. Sinner wants to ensure that it stays that way.

In any case, the balance speaks in favor of the South Tyrolean, who was able to win four of the six duels so far against the 26-year-old. SportNews will follow Sinner's quarter-finals on Tuesday from around 10.30 a.m. with a live ticker.
