Jannik Sinner Australian Open 2021

‘Jannik Sinner will be one of the best players in the world,’ predicts Spanish star

Jannik Sinner ‘will be one of the best players in the world’ soon, according to Miami Masters semi-final opponent Roberto Bautista Agut.

Sinner defeated the Spaniard in Dubai last month, and they will meet again in the last four in Miami after Bautista Agut stunned Daniil Medvedev in the quarter-finals.

And, after already seeing Sinner up close, Bautista Agut has little doubt about his quality.

“Jannik Sinner is playing great. I have to say he will be one of the best players in the world,” Bautista Agut said after beating Medvedev 6-4, 6-2.

“It was a very tough match in Dubai, and it was a very tight score.

“He’s playing great, he’s very solid and he has very good strokes. I think I’ll have to play another good match like tonight.

“I want to enjoy another good match and be happy about playing in the semi-finals.”

On the Medvedev match, Bautista Agut added: “I want to give Daniil all the credit, I know he is one of the best players in the world.

“He’s been winning a lot of matches, he’s number two in the world, so I’m very happy and proud about how I played today.

“I think I showed a great level on the court.”
