Injury or rant? On the court until 2:37 a.m. to finish his match against Mackenzie McDonald, Jannik Sinner withdrew from the round of 16 scheduled for this Thursday. The Italian was due to face Alex de Minaur around 4 p.m., that is to say less than fifteen hours after his last match.
Earlier this Thursday, Norwegian Casper Ruud was outraged by this organization. “Well done ATP. It's the best way to help one of the best players in the world recover, he wrote on X (ex-Twitter). What joke !"
Criticism towards the organizers of the Paris Masters 1000 is increasing, both on the players' and spectators' sides. Directly qualified for the quarter-finals, Alex de Minaur will face Andrey Rublev, who defeated the Dutchman Botic Van De Zandschulp.
