By defeating Carlos Alcaraz in the ATP Umag final of 2022, Jannik Sinner validates the title of star in the tennis world. Jannik has defeated Carlos twice recently, most recently at Wimbledon on grass and now on clay.
Given the response to a heartbreaking first set, he was a Sinner who showed excellent signs of improvement in the service, in the shots, and in the demeanor. Many players would have given up after falling behind 1-0 and 0-40 in the second set, but Jannik responded in a terrifying way by allowing Carlos, who was having trouble, just one game the rest of the way.
Sinner has demonstrated his ability to compete on any court, and today he defeated the fourth-ranked tennis player in the globe, one of the best in the world. For the Italian, this was his first career victory on a Top 5. And to add that the first set’s circumstances appeared to be quite complex.
Sinner played well right away, but Alcaraz seized the opportunity and won the opening set with a brilliant tiebreak. The battle appeared to be moving in a very clear direction, but then something happened, and Jannik acquired the confidence to shatter the rival’s convictions and win.
In the major circuit, Sinner and Alcaraz engaged in three contests on three different surfaces, including dirt and grass. Jannik triumphed while the Spaniard only triumphed on the Bercy cement.
During the award ceremony, Sinner said
The Italian number one made some interesting remarks and provided the following commentary on the match during the award ceremony hosted by the Croatian organizers: “Well, good evening to everyone. First of all, Carlos, thank you for bringing a fantastic match to life. You continue to get better every week.
Congratulations to your team! I want to thank my team for being near to me during this difficult time in 2022. I want to thank everyone, from the tournament director to the ball guys, and I hope to succeed now that the American season has begun.
I heard a lot of shouting when they arrived on Wednesday, and I’m thrilled to have won. I believe we all triumphed together, so thanks to everyone.”
