Jannik Sinner made the most recent advance in his quick ATP Tour prominence on Friday when he crushed Roberto Bautista Agut 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 to arrive at his first ATP Masters 1000 final game at the Miami Open sponsored by The International Bank, Itau.
The 19-year-old landed 25 more winners than his adversary (37-12) to arrive at the final on his competition debut.
During a vital game at 3-3 in set 2, the 19-year-old recuperated from 0/40 and saved several breakpoints.
Bautista Agut chose not to strike a crosscourt strike from his opponent in one of those breakpoints, but rather the ball ended up on the sideline.
Sinner raised his game from that second to be only the fourth youngster to arrive at the Miami final match in the competition’s 36-year history. Just over a wide span of time, World No. 1s Andre Agassi, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal had accomplished this.
Sinner will meet Hubert Hurkacz in the final on Sunday, April 4, 2021. Hubert defeated Andrey Rublev to advance in a game that ended 3 – 6, 4 – 6.
