Jannik Sinner becomes master of Umag and does so with a comeback as a champion: the young blue was the protagonist of a great tournament in Croatia, and the victory in the final on Carlos Alcaraz – certainly not the latest – it’s just the icing on the cake. Jannik starts strong, but is forced to give up the first set at the tie-break; but then he engages a higher gear, begins his comeback and from then on the opponent has to surrender, both technically and physically. There comes a peremptory 6-7 6-1 6-1 and the sixth career title for Sinner, who becomes the third Italian to triumph in Umag afterwards Fabio Fognini (2016) e Marco Cecchinato(2018). The numbers tell of a very tough final: 2 hours and 26 minutes of play, with 9 break points canceled out of 9 by Sinner, able to serve 6 aces and 58% of first balls, transforming 77% into points.
