The faulty returns quickly

Thirty victories since the beginning of 2024, two out of two in Paris without problems, neither technical nor physical. On to the next one Yannick Sinerwho against local idol Richard Gasquet continues the training that began against Eubanks, but also in checking the condition of his hip and in the distance race over Novak Djokovic towards No. 1.

With the pitch covered by a roof, the humidity and the heavy ball, the test was more difficult than the previous one for Yannick, but he passed it successfully thanks to his innate ability to make things easier. The French audience, who had begun to cheer Gasquet by playing their trumpets, slowly returned the instruments to their boxes.

It is magic. The first set, with Gasquet’s recovery, was the most balanced, as Sinner broke his opponent’s serve for the first time in the seventh game thanks to a double fault.

In the game that ended the set, this is the twist you don’t expect: the invasion of the ball boy convinced the point is over. However, a point to repeat, Sinner was not bothered at all and, after closing the set, immediately took a break in the second set as well, which became a double at 5-1 thanks to playing leg chops on a diagonal backhand and on continuous variations that would Fall down the bull. Gasquet, who was moved from one side of the court to the other, still had the strength to take the first game of his match, but he dropped serve again (3-2) immediately afterwards to Sinner, who opened the sixth game with a fearsome forehand winner. By comparison, what the Australian Open gave him in January in the final against Medvedev is a compliment.
