Sinner v Mager Head to Head
Sinner and Mager have never faced off in a competitive match before this.
Sinner Bruised But Rises From Dead
Down two sets to one and serving at 3-4 in the fourth set, Sinner faced five break-points in the game. He saved every one of them, then saved a match-point in his next service game before breaking his opponent at 5-5 to serve out the equaliser.
And once he had pushed his first round match against Pierre Hugues-Herbert in the final set, Sinner needed just the one break of serve – it came in the very first game – to clinch the win off his third match-point.
A relieved Sinner might not have been thinking of a win when a stunning fightback from Herbert saw him overturn a 6-1 loss of the first set to win the next two in a heavy tussle.
Sinner, who is one of the dark horses in the tournament and in the same section as Rafael Nadal, expected to trouble the defending champion, will need to do a lot better than he did in the opener to test the Spaniard.
First up though is an Italian, who himself did have a struggle against lucky loser Peter Gojowczyk.
Mager Wins First Ever Grand Slam Match
Ranked 87th in the world, Mager had come into this tournament on the back of some solid performances which included a Challenger title win at Marbella and a quarterfinal appearance in Belgrade as a qualifier.
More recently though, the Italian had lost back to back matches – in second round at Rome and then the opener in Parma – to put bit of a dent in his confidence.
That didn’t deter him so much in his opener, as he defeated lucky loser Gojowczyk in four sets and two hours and 39 minutes.
Mager, who has made it to one ATP final in his career, losing on the clay court of Rio last year to Cristian Garin, has now added a second feather to his hat with his maiden Grand Slam main draw win. Can he add a second shock to his list having defeated Dominic Thiem in that very tournament too?
Sinner v Mager Prediction and Tip
Sinner’s a class act and an odd performance like the one in his opener should take nothing away from that. Backing him to win and win easy.
