37 in the morning and having to play 14 hours later – Spain’s News


Jannik Sinner He finished his second round match of the Paris-Bercy Masters 1,000 on Thursday at 2:37 in the morning. He won Mackenzie McDonald by 6-7 (6/8), 7-5 and 6-1 in two hours and 16 minutes. There were six matches scheduled for the center court, starting at 11:00 in the morning, and the duel between the Italian and the American was scheduled for 8:30 p.m., but the day was accumulating delays and began after midnight.

Sinner acknowledged after his victory that he most likely would not play in the round of 16 against Álex de Miñaur. The schedules came out and the duel against the Australian of Spanish origin was scheduled for the same Thursday at 5:00 p.m., that is, not fifteen hours after finishing the previous match. It’s not just the time it finished, it’s that after that the physio arrives, attend to the press, return to the hotel, have something to eat… Which delays going to bed three or four hours. Criticism from some colleagues about the schedules continued. “Bravo,” he writes. Casper Ruud, and after some ironic clapping, he adds: “Way to help one of the best players in the world recover and be as prepared as possible when his previous match ended at 2:37 am this morning. 14.5 hours to recover… what a joke,” says the Roland Garros and US Open 2022 finalist, after knowing the order of play.

“It’s crazy that the tournament doesn’t care and the ATP just follows what the tournament wants! Always the same story…”, he answers Stan Wawrinkawinner of three Grand Slams, to Ruud’s message.

Finally, Sinner made good on his threat and withdrew from the tournament upon seeing the schedule. He does not want to jeopardize his physical condition and he will not play in the round of 16, to be as prepared as possible for the ATP Finals (November 12-19), for which you already have a guaranteed place. A more than justified sit-in that leaves the tournament in the capital of France without one of its great attractions, since the Italian is one of the players of the moment, recent champion of Vienna and Beijing, beating in both finals Daniil Medvedevand in the Chinese event he also defeated Alcaraz in semi-finals.

Without the two, the three and the four of the world

Paris-Bercy no longer has the world number two, Alcaraz, eliminated by Sefiullin without excuses; number three, Medvedev, who lost to Dimitrov and went on a rampage against the French public; Not even four, Sinner, because of the nonsense of the calendar. Next up is Djokovic, who tonight (7:30 p.m.) plays the round of 16 against the Dutchman Griekspoor. Those who have already qualified for the quarterfinals were Dimitrovwho passed over Bublik (6-2 and 6-2); Rublevwho did something similar with Van de Zandschulp (6-3 and 6-3) and Khachanovwho eliminated the Alcaraz executioner, Safiullin (4-6, 6-4, 6-2).
