Calitos has dispatched this Saturday to Jannik Sinner in the semifinals of the first Masters 1000 on the calendar with a score of 7-6(4) and 6-3, in 1 hour and 52 minutes.
In this way, he signs his best result in the Coachella Valley and this Sunday he will face Daniil Medvedev, starting at 00:00 in Spain, for a double booty.
The attractiveness of the trophy is joined by the possibility of returning to world number one to the detriment of the absent Novak Djokovic. for now, he has remained only 140 points behind the Serbian.
The champion of a big one is pure spectacle and that is why it has hooked so much in a country like the United States. There he was crowned at the US Open and is going for another weight wound.
