Sinner hammers Medvedev to reach Miami final

Jannik Sinner produced a stunning performance to demolish defending champion Daniil Medvedev in straight sets and reach the Miami Open final.

In a rematch of this year’s epic Australian Open final, in which Medvedev led by two sets to love before Sinner stormed back to claim his first grand slam title, the 22-year-old made light work of his opponent this time out.

Sinner dropped only three games as he romped to a 6-1 6-2 victory in just 69 minutes to reverse the result of last year’s final.

The Italian lost his only match of the season so far to Carlos Alcaraz in the semi-finals in Indian Wells two weeks ago but has been dominant once more in Florida.

Serena Williams was among the crowd in attendance, and some fans at Hard Rock Stadium jeered Medvedev late in the second set after two wild errors, with the Russian completely outplayed by his opponent.

Sinner, who can overtake Alcaraz as world No 2 by winning the title, told Sky Sports after his win: “I felt great on court today. I served very well, especially in important moments.

“I handled the situation well in the beginning of each set. He had some break chances. If he makes them, it’s already much different.

“I’m very happy. I think Daniil didn’t play his best today, he missed some shots which he usually doesn’t miss, but I took the chance and I’m very happy to be in the final.”

Sinner is the first man to reach back-to-back Miami Open finals since John Isner in 2018 and 2019. He will face the winner of the second semi-final between No 4 seed Alexander Zverev and 11th-seeded Grigor Dimitrov, who knoced out Alcaraz in the quarters.

The women’s final on Saturday sees American Danielle Collins face No 4 seed Elena Rybakina.
