Tennis: Us Open, Sinner enters the quarterfinals for the first time – Ultima Ora

(ANSA) – ROME, SEPTEMBER 06 – Jannick Sinner qualifies for the first time in the US Open tennis quarter-finals. And with Matteo Berrettini already qualified, it is also the first time that among the best eight of the American tournament there are two Italians at the same time.

The 21-year-old South Tyrolean no.13 in the ATP and 11th seeded in Flushing Meadows beat the 28-year-old Belarusian Ilya Ivashka (no.73) after five sets, who in the third round on the cement of the US slam had eliminated Lorenzo Musetti: 6-1 5 -7 6-2 4-6 6-3 the final score between Sinner and Ivashka.

Sinner will play tomorrow against the winner of the round of 16 match between the Croatian Marin Cilic and the Spaniard Carlos Alcaraz.

Berrettini instead finds the Norwegian Casper Ruud in the quarterfinals tonight. (HANDLE).
