The blue eliminated in two sets by Pegula. Ko Auger Aliassime, direct competitor of Jannik for the qualification to the Finals

Jasmine Paolini’s race at the Indian Wells BNP Paribas Open ends in the third round (hard, 8,761,725 ​​dollars). Recovered as lucky loser, after the successes on the Japanese Mai Hontama and then on Elise Mertens (n.18 in the ranking) the blue was overcome in 58 minutes by the American Jessica Pegula: 6-4 6-1 the score of a hard-fought match only in the first set, in which Paolini immediately lost her serve and then failed to transform the opportunity for the break in the sixth game. From the 1-1 of the second set the Pegula slipped six games in a row. For the blue, the consolation of the ranking remains: Monday 18 will be n. 55, his best ranking ever in his career.


Although Sinner after the success on Millman declared that “I’m not thinking about the Atp Finals, I want to be focused on every match and we will see in the end how he does it”, the elimination of Felix Auger-Aliassime (beaten by the Spanish Vinolas 6-4 6 -2) is good news for qualifying in Turin. The Canadian is No. 11 in the ATP Race, behind Sinner. Andy Murray’s race continues, on the scoreboard thanks to a wild card: the 34-year-old Scottish eliminated 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz 5-7 6-3 6-2 in an intergenerational battle. After losing the first set, in the second set Murray served from below to go up 2-1, then saved 4 break points to close without a story, while Alcaraz had to ask for the intervention of the physiotherapist for a foot problem. The next opponent will be the German Zverev, who eliminated the American Brooksby 6-4 3-6 6-1.
