A practically perfect match in Beijing Yannick Siner On Sunday morning, he defeated world number 38 Yoshihito Nishioka with a score of 6-0 and 6-2 in an hour and 7 minutes. The cold that plagued him at the start of the Asian Tour was cleared: successes suffered with Evans’ debut, and the ease with the Japanese paved the way for a South Tyrol team that reached their 12th quarter-final of the season. The winner of Ron Dimitrov awaits in the quarterfinals. For Simone Vagnozzi’s disciple, this is the 46th victory of 2023: as of today, he becomes the first Italian in the Open Era to win more than 45 matches per year for three consecutive seasons.

Sinner controlled the ball everywhere and monopolized the match after dropping his serve in the second game of the first set. From 2-2 in the first set, the blue player won 11 consecutive matches, taking advantage of mismanagement of service rounds by Nishioka, who suffered six breaks in seven matches.
