No, it was definitely not the year of the genitive sinner. The 21-year-old often slowed down due to injuries The fact that he was still able to celebrate some memorable successes is a testament to his great class. For Paster, the personal end of the season marks the last tennis year: he had to cancel the final round of the Davis Cup in Málaga, Spain due to an injury.
Italy’s current No. 1 (Sinar is ranked 15th in the world rankings) is suffering from a finger injury sustained at the Masters tournament in Paris-Bercy. “Unfortunately, this injury has not healed, so I cannot take part in the Davis Cup. It was a very difficult decision for me,” writes Sinner on social media. Big blow for Azurri, who toured Spain, as Matteo Berrettini (ATP 16) is also not 100% fit after a foot injury.
Italy’s captain Filippo Vollandri will nominate Turin’s Lorenzo Sonego (ATP 47) in place of Sinner. Lorenzo Musetti (ATP 23) will also be present. Italy will face America in the quarter-finals on 24 November. In the final semi-final two days later, Azzurri will face either Germany or Canada.
