ATP Montecarlo, Sinner increasingly “illegal”: Korda overwhelmed (6-1/6-2). Tomorrow is Struff


By John

The first one was good. Jannik Sinner's journey to the “Rolex Monte-Carlo Masters” starts off on the right foot, the first Masters 1000 of the season on clay, taking place on the courts of the Principality (prize money 5,950,575 euros). In his seasonal debut on clay and in his first outing after the triumph in Miami, the South Tyrolean reached the round of 16 by defeating Sebastian Korda 6-1 6-2 on Court Rainier III in an hour and 15 minutes of play. Second seed of the tournament and directly into the second round, Sinner will now face Jan Lennard-Struff in the round of 16, already beaten in two sets a few weeks ago in Indian Wells.
