The Norwegian, a big name on the circuit who would have everything to gain from the treatment reserved for the blue: “Congratulations ATP, nice way to help one of the best players on the circuit recover”
Jannik Sinner wins in the middle of the night, qualifies for the round of 16 of the ATP Masters 1000 in Paris and after 14 hours has to return to the field. A questionable schedule to say the least marks the commitments of the world number 4, forced into a senseless tour de force, which does not even leave his colleagues indifferent.
Sinner debuts in the tournament in the second round, taking to the field at midnight between November 1st and 2nd to face the American MacKenzie McDonald. The blue player loses the first set in the tie-break, comes back and wins in the third set after 2h17′ of battle with the score of 6-7 (6-8), 7-5, 6-1. He goes to bed, wakes up and practically has to return to the field in the afternoon, around 5-5.30 pm, for the round of 16 in which he faces the Australian Alex De Minaur.
Madness, if you consider that the Paris-Bercy ATP also today includes an evening program. Everyone notices it, including the Norwegian Casper Ruud, a big name on the circuit who would have everything to gain from the treatment reserved for Sinner. “Congratulations ATP, great way to help one of the best players on the circuit to recover and be ready after finishing the match at 2.37 in the morning… 14 and a half hours to recover, what a joke…”
