ATP roundup: Jannik Sinner stays hot, wins Rotterdam title

jannik sinner hits

No. 1 seed Jannik Sinner of Italy captured his second title of the young season when he beat Australian fifth seed Alex de Minaur 7-5, 6-4 to win the ABN AMRO Open on Sunday in Rotterdam, Netherlands.

Sinner won his first career Grand Slam title last month at the Australian Open and has now won 15 straight tour-level matches. He will rise to No. 3 in the ATP rankings on Monday, the highest an Italian man has ever been ranked.

Sinner absorbed de Minaur’s 10 aces, saved four of six break points and won 35 of 45 first-service points (77.7 percent). He was pushed to the brink in the 10th game of the first set, as de Minaur saved four set points before winning the break point, but Sinner took control from there.

IEB+ Argentina Open

Argentine wild card Facundo Diaz Acosta earned his first career ATP Tour title and got to celebrate on home soil, as he defeated third seed Nicolas Jarry of Chile 6-3, 6-4 in the final in Buenos Aires.

Diaz Acosta will leap from No. 87 to No. 59 in the ATP rankings after his surprise performance this week, which also saw him upset No. 4 seed Francisco Cerundolo of Argentina in the Round of 16.

Against Jarry — who upset Spanish star Carlos Alcaraz in the semifinals — Diaz Acosta saved all six of his break points while winning 38 of 52 first-service points (73.1 percent) and 11 of 18 second-serve points (61.1 percent).

Delray Beach Open

The final between No. 1 seed Taylor Fritz and No. 3 seed Tommy Paul was postponed from Sunday to Monday afternoon due to inclement weather in Florida. The match will begin not before 12:30 local time Monday.

Fritz is the defending champion, while Paul is on a seven-match winning streak.
