Jannik Sinner advances to the ATP in Rotterdam, where he will face French Gael Monfils in the round of 16: «He is one of the public’s favorites and he is playing great»

Dutchman Botic van de Zandschulp eliminated (6-3, 6-3) Jannik Sinner takes to the court today, Thursday 15 February, in the second round of the ATP in Rotterdam. He will challenge the Frenchman Gael Monfils who knocked out the Canadian Denis Shapovalov (7-6, 7-6). The Italian will not play before 7.30pm: «I am satisfied with this victory, the first match after a Slam is always a little different. Monfils is very dangerous, as well as a crowd favorite. It will be a difficult match, he is playing great,” he said.

The Frenchman also had his say on the match against the Italian: «Jannik will definitely want to win, he is a humble champion and it will be very tough for me. But I have been facing this type of player all my career and now I continue my journey against him. When I faced him a while ago, I immediately knew that this guy would lead the way. He hits the ball differently, his swings from both sides are crazy. I remember when he beat me in Toronto and then played great against Wawrinka at the US Open, we all knew that his moment would come.”

Sinner and Monfils will face each other for the sixth time. The balance is clearly in favor of Jannik, who is ahead 4-1 in head-to-head matches. He only lost the first match, played in the autumn of 2019 when he was just 18 years old. Then four victories in a row for the South Tyrolean, the memorable one in the fifth set of the US Open in 2021. Also notable were the successes in Sofia (the 2021 final) and the 1000 in Toronto, a tournament that Sinner then won last summer.
