Miami Open: Sinner a winner; Grigor shows greatness

The men's semifinal matches at the Miami Open were revealing. Jannik Sinner dominated in convincing fashion. While Grigor Dimtrov showed the world his immense talent can win big in Magic City. Greatness was on display at the Hard Rock.

Jannik Sinner raced into his third final of the season, having already won titles at the Australian Open and Rotterdam, beating last year’s champion, Danill Medvedev 6-1 6 -2. Sinner put on a clinic out there. 

Looking ahead to Sunday Sinner said, “So I'm just trying to, you know, enjoy this moment. For me, it's the third time that I can play the final here in Miami, which is an amazing achievement for me personally, and then hopefully I can lift once the bigger trophy. If not, it was again a great result, a great opportunity, and that's it.”

Grigor Dimitrov produced another impressive performance defeating Alexander Zverev 6-4 7-6(4) 6-4 to advance to the Miami Open final. With this result, Dimitrov moves up to No. 9 in the PIF ATP Rankings, marking his return to the Top 10 for the first time since November 2018. He's also bringing the much-loved one-handed backhand back into the top 10.

The Bulgarian reflected, “I think actually overall the last three games of the match, I played with a lot of authority, played serve and volley a few times, came to the net three times. So that was, you know, that was a moment where I knew I had to use into my advantage, absolutely. But, you know, I didn't overthink it or anything like that. I just had to, regardless of that point in particular, I really had to step up in order for me to win that match.”
