An early birthday present. Three days away from celebrating his 22nd birthday, the Italian Jannik Sinner won the Masters 1000 in Toronto on Sunday August 13, beating the Australian Alex de Minaur in the final (6-4, 6-1). After two unconfirmed breaks in the first set, he struck a shutout on his opponent’s serve – author of only three winning shots – to pass in front, unfold in the second set and finally win a trophy of this caliber. .

After two failures in the final in Miami (2021, 2023), the scorer of Gaël Monfils in the quarter-finals becomes only the second transalpine player to win a Masters 1000 after Fabio Fognini in Monte-Carlo in 2019. In addition to gaining two places at the ATP to pass world number 6 on Monday, his best career rank, Jannik Sinner goes back to 4th in the Race (the calendar year ranking). He is thus positioned as one of the players to follow during the US Open, which begins in two weeks.
