Sinner nice at night but… angry. He finishes playing in the middle of the night and withdraws: he will not play the round of 16 today

Last night, fresh from the match against McDonald, which ended after three sets at 2:36, Jannik Sinner had questioned his presence on the field today in the round of 16 match of the Masters 1000 in Paris-Bercy, with a starting time set no earlier than 5pm, against Alex De Minaur. «I don’t know if I’ll play in the round of 16, I’ll see when I wake up. However, I thank the fans who stayed until so late”, the words of Sinner, who was very critical towards the organization of the Parisian Masters 1000, which scheduled six matches from 11 onwards on the Centrale, matches which then they continue until late at night. And this creates problems, just think that the 22-year-old No. 4 in the world, between massages and wind-down training after the match against McDonald, only went to bed at 5 this morning.
A borderline situation commented thus, on social media, by Sinner’s coach, Darren Cahill: «Happy for Jannik’s victory, but there is no attention to the well-being of the players with the Paris program».

At lunchtime today the decision: Sinner will not play the round of 16 match against De Minaur. Australian into the quarterfinals without struggling.
