The conflict between Alcaraz and Jannik Sinner
Alcaraz discussed his conflict with Sinner. “Sinner–Alcaraz: Will it be a saga? I really do! We will undoubtedly engage in additional battles in significant stadiums and compete to win significant competitions.
We still have a long way to go, but the future seems bright. Really, I hope it is. In the future, I wish to play more bouts with him.” At a news conference, Sinner also spoke about upcoming difficulties. “Playing against Alcaraz is never simple.
We’ll see how he and I perform in America; perhaps we’ll cross paths once more. We don’t have outdoor hard courts, so we’ve never played each other there. He’s demonstrated his ability to play well on any surface. He has competed in numerous finals and won in Madrid and Morocco.
He has a bright future ahead of him. He is a decent man.” At the Masters 1000 in Montreal, Sinner and Alcaraz will both compete to start their US Open preparations. The two rising stars of the ATP Tour want to surpass their greatest finish from a Grand Slam competition.
Both have many times competed in the quarterfinals of a major but have never advanced to the semi-finals. They will have this significant opportunity for the final Grand Slam of 2022.
