Jannik Sinner v Arthur Rinderknech Head to Head
This will be the first meeting between World No. 17 Sinner and World No. 125 Rinderknech.
Sinner Avenges His Dubai Defeat to Karatsev
On March 18, Aslan Karatsev came back from a set down to oust Italian teenager Jannik Sinner in a thrilling quarterfinal at the Dubai Tennis Championships.
Two months later, Sinner got his revenge against the Russian, staging an emphatic comeback after being bageled in the first set to win the first round contest at the Lyon Open on Wednesday.
Having lost the first six games in the match, Sinner made a brilliant recovery to beat the World No. 25, 0-6, 6-3, 6-4.
Sinner saved 9 of 13 break points and converted 3 of 10 to win the rain-affected contest in two hours and 33 minutes. The match was halted for 70 minutes with Karatsev up 2-1 in teh third set.
The 19-year-old Italian has been in sensational form this year and he improved to 21-9 in 2021 following the win against Karatsev.
Ranked No. 17 in the world, Sinner began the year by claiming his second ATP title, when he defeated compatriot Stefano Travaglia in the final of the Great Ocean Road Open. (He won his first title in Sofia last year).
The title in Melbourne was followed by a run to a maiden ATP 1000 final in Miami, where he finished runner-up Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz.
Sinner also made it to the final four in Barcelona, defeating Andrey Rublev in the quarterfinals but failed to make the final after falling to Stefanos Tsitsipas.
The Italian also featured in the quarterfinals in Dubai and Marseille and lost to Rafael Nadal in the second round in Rome last week.
Lucky Loser Rinderknech Ousts Ymer
France’s lucky loser Arthur Rinderknech knocked out Swede qualifier Mikael Ymer in the first round on Wednesday.
Rinderknech needed two hours and 22 minutes as he battled past the Swede for a 6-3, 6-7 (4-7), 6-2 win.
The 25-year-old Frenchman, who won 75% of his first serve points, saved three of four break points and converted four of nine to beat the 101st ranked Swede.
This was only the fourth win for Rinderknech in the main draw of an ATP tournament. The right-hander improved to 4-3 in 2021 with the win over the 22-year-old Swede.
Rinderknech, who had earlier this year reached the quarterfinal of Open 13 in Marseille, had won the first qualifying round against Belgium’s Kimmer Coppejans on Sunday, but lost to Portugal’s Joao Sousa in the second qualifying round on Monday. Both of those qualifiers were three set affairs and he made the main draw as a lucky loser.
