    30 % Bautista – 22 of 89

    Ugly match between two players who can precisely hit the ball from the baseline for hours. Bautista [12] played half of his 1st set winners when he was serving at 6:5. The serving Sinner [31] erased a 0/40 deficit at 3-all in the 2nd set (first BP with BH landing on the baseline), at 4-all he trailed 0/30. In the 3rd set he came back from *1:3 and similarly to their match in Dubai 1.5 week earlier #, he played his best tennis in the last game of the match (three backhand winners in four points!). “If you’re 0/40 down, just try to keep fighting. I think obviously that game helped me a little bit in the match,” said Sinner. “That game changed a little bit the match. It was the same like Hurkacz and Tsitsipas… Some points can decide the match and sometimes can give you a little bit more strength. I think it was important that game.” Sinner joins Agassi, Nadal & Djokovic as the 4th teenage finalist in Miami. Bautista stated: “Of course, he’s good. [In] both matches [I] have the feeling I could [have] won both times, but finally I didn’t. I think he has something special in tough moments.”

    # Comparison of their two matches (in back-to-back events):
    Dubai (3R): Sinner d. Bautista 6-4, 3-6, 7-5… 2 hours 24 minutes… Total points: 88-95 (seven points away)
    Miami (SF): Sinner d. Bautista 5-7, 6-4, 6-4… 2 hours 28 minutes… Total points: 98-91 (six points away)

    Serve and volley: both 0
