Sinner got four good matches in on grass to better prepare for his qualifying attempt at Wimbledon, where he is safely inside the cut line. Sinners rejoice and pray for Jannik’s path through 3 opponents and into MD.A tough ask for Jannik Sinner in the qualifying event in Halle where he was drawn to play the no. 1 seed, Joao Sousa, in the first round earlier on Saturday. Although the Italian won the first set on a tiebreak, he was broken twice in the second set and once in the third as Sousa recorded a 6-7(6), 6-3, 6-4 victory. Sinner might do well to return to the Challenger tour where he can avoid losses in the early rounds and thereby continue his impressive rise up the rankings.
