21.00 Today a real final exam is expected for Sinner. We know that he gives his best in luxury challenges and against high-ranking players (like with Rublev in the round of 16), however he tends to get distracted against more modest and affordable opponents.

20.56 Whoever wins this match will face either the Spanish Carlos Alcaraz or the American Taylor Fritz in the semifinals.

20.48 Jannik Sinner on the other hand is virtually No. 10 in the world. Depending on the case, he could finish the week 11th, 10th, 9th or even 6th. CLICK HERE FOR ALL COMBINATIONS.
20.47 Emil Ruusuvuori is No. 54 in the world. However, thanks to the quarter-finals reached in this tournament, he has already climbed into the top 40 and is virtually n.37 in the ranking.
20.46 It is therefore curious to note how Sinner and Ruusuvuori face each other in the Masters1000 in Miami for the third year in a row!
