Rublev: Rafa Is Best Athlete in History

Empowered by his run to the quarterfinals in his Roland Garros debut, Sinner made a smooth transition to the indoor hard court of Lanxess Arena.




The 19-year-old Italian controlled the center of the court dictating play with his heavy groundstrokes and fluid movement.

The 46th-ranked Sinner, who improved to 11-9 on the season, will play for his third quarterfinal of the season next.

Sinner denied both break points he faced setting up a second-round meeting with Pierre-Hugues Herbert.

The French qualifier topped Tennys Sandgren 6-3, 3-6, 6-3.

Earlier, Alejandro Davidovich Fokina saved eight of nine break points defeating Damir Dzuhmur 6-2, 6-3.

The Spaniard will next face American Steve Johnson, who upset ninth-seeded Marin Cilic yesterday.
