In Tennis, 26th seed Hubert Hurkacz of Poland won the biggest title of his career beating 19-year-old Jannik Sinner of Italy in the Miami Open final last night. Hurkacz, 24, improved to 10-0 in Florida this year, including the Delray Beach title in January.
Ranked 37th, he beat two top-10 opponents in the same tournament for the first time, and he is projected to climb to a career-high 16th in next week’s rankings.
Hurkacz was poised playing his first final in the top-level ATP series, the Masters 1000. Sinner, playing in just his third Masters 1000 tournament, wobbled serving at 6-5 in the first set and was broken at love. Hurkacz became Poland’s first Masters 1000 champion.
