The Lower Austrian had to admit defeat in the round of 16 with 4: 6.2: 6. It was his second round of 16 game in this tournament after 2017, so he has to wait for the quarter-finals. Sinner now meets the winner of the game Casper Ruud (NOR-4) against Lorenzo Sonego (ITA).

Novak got off to a good start, initially brought his serves through and had two breakballs when the score was 2: 1, but he left them unused. With four points in a row, Sinner, this year's tournament winner in Melbourne, Washington, Sofia and Antwerp, put it 2-2. At 3: 3, 40: 0 he used the second break ball against the previously very good server Novak. The favorite could continue to rely on his serves and sank 6: 4 in the first set after almost 40 minutes.

The 20-year-old Sinner increased the pace right at the beginning of the second set and won the first game with a more powerful game with Break. But was immediately confronted with a local hero who was still fighting and had to fend off a break chance after a backhand error – which he managed with ease.

At 0: 3, young father Novak, who is in 116th place in the world rankings, worked out three break chances, but again failed to reach the goal of winning points against Sinner. Sinner, who was still struggling to participate in the ATP Finals in Turin, won the second round 6: 2 and thus the game after 1:16 hours.
