Now the South Tyrolean, who joined the ATP 250 in Stockholm next week, aims to arrive in Turin as the first reserve: Tsitsipas could in fact give up for an inflammation in his arm
Officially, Jannik Sinner out of the ATP Finals in Turin. Success in the Paris-Bercy quarters of Hubert Hurkacz against the Australian James Duckworth (6-2 6-7 7-5) qualifies the Pole for the Masters’ tournament. Hurkacz, who in Miami on Easter day had deprived Sinner of the title in the American Masters 1000, in recent weeks has shivered and felt the breath on the neck of the South Tyrolean, but still managed to keep the eighth position in the Race, reaching Djokovic, Medvedev , Zverev, Tsitsipas, Rublev, Berrettini and Ruud.
Sinner, at the moment, the first of the excluded with 3,015 points, 300 less than Hurkacz: an unbridgeable gap even if Sinner wins the ATP 250 in Stockholm at the start on Monday, the last good appointment to collect points. The South Tyrolean, who has chosen not to play the NextGen Finals in Milan (where the other golden baby of Italian tennis, Lorenzo Musetti, will be present), has one last hope of entering the Finals: Tsitsipas, in fact, withdrew from the Paris-Bercy tournament this week due to an elbow problem, the extent of which will be verified in the next few days. Sinner, keeping the ninth position in the Race, would be the first reserve to enter in case of forfeit of one of the first eight. And it would not be a consolation, on the contrary, the award for a season of the highest level for the 20 year old from Sesto.
