Jannik Sinner scares the debut on the red of the Masters 1000 in Monte Carlo. Jannik passed 2 sets to 1 Borna Coric, 6-3 2-6 6-3 without sparing us a good dose of fear. After conquering the first set, Jannik in sharp decline in the second, he began to touch his lower abdomen, calling the trainer. A few minutes of treatment for him who then returned to the field refreshed, even mentally by winning the 2nd round where he will face the winner of the match between Ruusuvuori and the German Otte.

A match certainly not easy for the Italian number 2, against a player who was returning from a long injury and an operation on his right shoulder that left him out for almost a year. Earth is not Jannik’s most loved surface which, however, remember, last year reached the round of 16 in Paris and two years ago, again at Roland Garros, he beat Zverev and stopped with Nadal.

The match

First set that starts uphill for Sinner, who presents himself as an Italian number 1 considering the absence of Berrettini.

The second serving also starts with a double fault for the Italian who still risks losing his serve at 3-2. The opportunity for the South Tyrolean followed by Simone Vagnozzi arrives at 3-3. He snatches the serve from Coric and climbs 4-3 to then close the set 6-3. In the second set, two breaks down, Sinner begins to touch his lower abdomen and at 5-2 for Coric he calls the physio to be treated.

In the end, Simone Vagnozzi’s assisted back on the field, who has the possibility of recovering one of the two breaks from behind but in the end he gives up the set 6-2. The third is played and the Croatian immediately has a break point. Jannik manages to cancel it and invokes the audience. He keeps his serve and charges up, enough to win 3 break points in the 2nd game and go up 2-0 with 7 consecutive points. Coric gets nervous and tries to smash the racket. Other points for the South Tyrolean who plays at full arm, free from negative thoughts of a possible injury and goes 3-0 then 4-1.
