    Sinner a break down in second set, he’s done…Medvedev played well but Sinner struggling with first serve and simply can’t deal with nerves, on the occasion.

    So Sinner has got his shit together and has come from two sets down to level the match.

    Sinner turned this around and is one hold of serve away from his first grand slam.

    Sinner was really in control of the match from the time he got a break back in the second set….i don’t think it would have gone five sets if Sinner hadn’t been a bundle of nerves for a set and a half.


    Don’t get me wrong Medvedev is a good player and once he gets into an aggressive stride he’s difficult to deal with, but Sinner was struggling getting a first serve in for ages and once he started doing so, his service game was far more like it was throughout most of the tournament.

    Whether Sinner is the next big thing I don’t know, with Nadal and Djokovic we’ve had two of the best returners in the game who wear their opponents down, Sinner is a far more aggressive player who’s main aim is just to hit the ball as hard as he can.

    Not creating a new thread for this but Sinner and Alcaraz who seem best placed to become the new generation of top tennis players play each other in the semis of Indian Wells. From what I’ve seen of both, Alcaraz looks to me to be the better player although their head to head record is 4 wins each in eight meetings.

    They are level on Clay, Alcaraz has the advantage 3-2 on hard court and Sinner the victor in their only grass match.
