Italian star Jannik Sinner claimed the prestigious Rotterdam crown after defeating Alex de Minaur in an exciting final.

The final scoreline of 6-4, 7-6 reflected the intensity of the match and we predicted a hard fought Sinner win.

Sinner climbed to world No. 3 as a result and this just cements the fact that he is the most in-form tennis player at the moment. In fact, he has now 12-0 in 2024 and has won 15 successive matches overall, counting the run that earned him his maiden Grand Slam title at the Australian Open in January.

Oh, he also added to his record against this Sundays opponent De Minaur, now 7-0.

Sinner and De Minaur comments

Sinner, who only lost one set in Rotterdam, commented after the match that it was a really good battle out there and continued:

“I felt like I could have served a little bit better, but these are the details that maybe in the future can make me a little bit stronger also. An amazing week it has been.”

De Minaur, also with a great year so far, acknowledged Sinner’s performance while vowing to bounce back stronger.

“Credit to Jannik, he played a great match and deserved to win,” de Minaur said. “I’ll take this as a learning experience and come back even stronger next time.”

De Minaur has also reached a new goal for himself with a no 9 spot in the world rankings, with his recent great performances.

Indian Wells next

We can’t wait to see if Sinner can keep this up at the Indian Wells in a few weeks, one of our favourite tournaments.

Final words form the Italian himself:

“Every time when you win a title, it doesn’t matter how big, it means a lot. I had a little bit more attention, but when you earn something, you have to deal with that. I felt like I was trying to put 100% effort into everything I’ve done and that’s the result of this week. It’s going to start again from zero at Indian Wells, so I’m already trying to improve, and let’s see what’s coming.”
