Jannik breaks in the first game!
Jannik believes it. It is not enough for him to be the first player born in 2001 to have hit the round of 16 in a Masters 1000 tournament, after beating Frenchman Benoit Paire. The prestigious success against Stefanos Tsitsipas, seeded number 3 and sixth in the world ranking, who had eliminated him in the last edition, is also close to him.
Now between the athlete from San Candido and the quarter-finals of the internationals of Italy there is the Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov. The twenty-nine year old from Haskovo is not the one in 2017, when he won the Cincinnati Master 1000 and the ATP Finals, climbing up to third place in the world rankings. However, the current number 20 remains a difficult opponent to face. He has experience (ten years difference between the two) and has a powerful forehand and effective serve.
Where to see the game
