Sinner last played on Sunday
Last week, Sinner reached the final at an ATP 500 event in Rotterdam.
In the Rotterdam final, Sinner was up by a set before Daniil Medvedev came back to win in three sets 5-7, 6-2, 6-2. After losing to Medvedev, SInner showed his class and congratulated the Russian on his result. “Daniil, congratulations to you and your team for winning your first title this season.
I think you’re going to win a lot more this year, so I wish you all the best. It has been a positive two weeks for me. I played a lot of matches and I’m very proud,» Sinner said after the Rotterdam final. After a strong result in Rotterdam, Sinner was scheduled to make his third appearance in Marseille this week.
Previously, Sinner made his Marseille debut in 2020, when he reached the round of 16 before losing to Medvedev. In 2021, Sinner returned to Marseille and reached the quarterfinals, before losing to Medvedev again. Although Sinner was forced to withdraw from Marseille, it was a positive week for him.
Before reaching the Rotterdam final, Sinner won Montpellier after beating Maxime Cressy in the final. Hopefully, Sinner won’t be out for too long and won’t miss any additional events.
