The Jannik Sinner-Cameron Norrie flip-flops in the Nitto ATP Finals race continue to perform well. Norrie made a surprise run to the Indian Wells Masters title earlier this month and passed thinner. The sinner lifted the European Open trophy on Sunday to drive him back.

The 6-2, 6-2 routs of Diego Schwartzman’s sinners pushed the 20-year-old Italian to 10th place on the Turin King List. With Rafael Nadal appearing this year, he is effectively in 9th place, just 110 points behind Hubert Hurkacz in 8th place and the final spot. Norrie is only 5 points behind thinner.

Both Hurkacz and Norrie would have benefited from Schwartzman’s victory, but the second-seeded Argentina had little chance of a lit sinner. Topseed hit eight aces, earning 91% of his first serve points and saving only the two breakpoints he faced.

“I felt great in court,” Sinner assured. “I worked well. I think I provided better service today. I felt good, but every day is different in tennis. You need to be careful. Honestly, from the first point I think I was able to play well throughout the tournament until the last point.

“You are the best man on the tour,” he told Schwartzman at the Trophy Ceremony. “Everyone loves you. You are everyone’s best friend.”

Meanwhile, at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow, the home spectators were treated to Aslan Karatzev’s victory. One of the 2021 breakout stars, the Russians rolled over Marin Cilic 6-2, 6-4 in the final on Sunday.

“It’s a dream come true,” commented Karatsev. “This was the tournament I played in qualifying and I’m winning the tournament now. Thank you so much for your support. It was a very tense final. I had a double fault and a long rally at the break point. But in the end I was able to win. “

The 19th place in the world can boost his own Turin hopes with this week’s title in St. Petersburg, but whatever he needs big results at next week’s Paris Masters.
