Jannik Sinner

US Open: Sinner tames Nakashima in 4 sets, is in the round of 16 (Video)

A growing Jannik Sinner wins the third round match at the US Open against the American Brandon Nakashima with a score of 3-6 6-4 6-1 6-2 and flies to the round of 16. No derby against Musetti, find the Belarusian Ilya Ivashka, n.73 ATP. Jannik struggled to find the measure in response and the best pace in the first set, also due to the excellent start of the American, really precise in the exchanges, with the first ball of service and very aggressive. Since the start of the second set, the blue has – perhaps for the first time in his career, advised by his coach – decided to move back considerably in response. Strange for him, who has one of the strengths in the advance, but in doing so he managed to start most of the exchanges with deep responses that slammed Brandon away from the bottom line, thus an advantage for Jannik.

Having grown up in service and with all the shots, and gradually more and more aggressive and ready to come to the net to take the point, Sinner won a hard-fought second set and then took off from the third set.

In the first set after two hard-fought games (with break points), Sinner runs into a very complicated sixth game in the serve. Ace, double fouls, save two break points but capitulate to the third. Nakashima serves as a train and wins the set 6-3

Hard, very hard the second set, exchanges with great intensity, with Jannik growing in all sectors of the game. He takes a break ahead, but with an uncertain turn at bat the blue loses the advantage in the seventh game. It is the shock that makes the match turn definitively. He becomes super aggressive in response, he does not use two break points in the eighth game, he takes the break and the second set for the 6-4.

From here on it is a solo by Sinner, more and more devastating in thrust and with excellent numbers at the service. Precise, powerful, ready to unload violent blows and run to the net. A truly impressive Sinner in the final phase, and in excellent physical condition. He closes the remaining partial 6-1 6-2 and flies in the second round. As a favorite.
