Forgive Me, Father, For I Am a Full Fledged Sinner!

Young Jannik is teaming with Oldrenzi in the dubs this week and they cruised 3&1 in 1R Antwerp vs the Austrian tandem of Marach and Jurgen Melzer.

Another €2860 or more in the swelling bank account.
LOL... I really don't think he's too worried about the bank account, especially after that sweet Nike deal. Paolino, on the other hand, probably still has to buy his own shoes...

Jokes aside, this is probably my favorite doubles pairing of all time: my old friend and my new idol... what more could I ask for?

Amico Paolo! I am impressed!

Such a clean BH and that determined look on his face as he perches the ball on his upraised racquet head before the toss is very unique.

Holy upset alert, Batman. Break points on 4 of 5 Monfils service games, breaking him twice. Up 6-3 after one.
 
Ah... that's what you call a good ol' fashioned clobbering!

Today, finally, he looked like the player I envisioned when I first caught a glimpse of him . Consistency and killer instinct have been lacking, but today there were no gifts, no black-outs, no hesitation. Just straight-up Sinnerminator mode from the first point to the last.

Deadly Sinner?

A win of sin may set up a rematch of 1R USO with The Stanimal. That may show how much he can quickly learn from his occasional bouts of atonement???

Here’s a lengthy interview from late spring at ATP250 Lyon (audio only) that shows how truly composed young Sinner (17 and 10 months) is and his wonderful English fluency he already possesses! He is going to be a media star if his game continues to grow to match his demeanor and real intelligence:

Is there a place to find the match online somewhere (free)? I have Tennis Channel, so maybe it'll pop on in a replay later, but I'd love to watch it if someone knows where I might find it online.

You could try supertennis.tv or their Facebook page, they'll be streaming it live on both. Technically it is visible anywhere, but I suspect it could be blocked in your country (US?) if another broadcaster owns the rights to this tournament. If not there's always streaming sites like atdhe or jokerlivestream, but venture into those murky waters at your own peril (I mean, I use them all the time, but decline any responsibility... ;))
 
In other news: hoping to lure the young Tyrolean back to the (supposed) motherland, the sneakily sinful Austrians have awarded Gianni a wild card for Vienna next week.

Looks like his Challenger days may be swiftly coming to an end.

Eccellente!

He will still need a few Challenger points to sew up DE for AO without a couple of wins either now or next week. Ortisei will sell out for every match he plays so I think he’ll be there in November.

Probably a big ask, but it'd be nice if he got a wild card into Vienna next week. He's practically Austrian lol

It's all coming together nicely to finish the season. Still scheduled for Eckental the week after Vienna. I imagine he's gonna be there barring a deep run in Austria.

He's currently making incursions into TFO's service games, but then each time, he sins.
EDIT: and there's the break for 4-3.

In slightly unrelated news, seems like Tiafoe's forehand seems a bit less janky.

I was going to say Sinner's strokes are so smooth, "how long is it going to take for someone to ask about his racquet in Pro Gear?"

But the thread already exists.:X3:

Most recent teenage finalist has been Felix earlier this year. Most recent teenage winner was Sascha several years back.

After defeating Frances Tiafoe 6-4, 3-6, 6-3 to reach the semi-finals in Antwerp, Jannik Sinner now has a provisional singles ranking of no. 100. The Italian began the year ranked no. 551.

Does that get him direct entry at the AO?

Will easily become a newcomer of the year.

BANG! Top 100 achieved on the nose!

Looking forward to a Stanimal rematch of 1R USO. That would be some nice shot making!
