STATS: Jannik Sinner proves his immense hitting power in Miami despite final defeat

Jannik Sinner demonstrated his clean hitting in quite spectacular style at the Miami Masters, statistics have revealed.

The 19-year-old was unable to win his first Masters title as he lost in the final to Polish ace Hubert Hurkacz.

However, he was arguably the star of the event, and he was able to put some very big hitters to shame with his ball-speed.

Sinner produced a tournament-leading average speed on the forehand of 130.3km/h throughout the tournament, and 118.6km/h from his backhand swing, according to figures released by the Italian media.

The Italian was likely helped to the top of those metrics by the absence of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, and Dominic Thiem.

However, he was also able to easily beat the speeds produced by Andrey Rublev and world number two Daniil Medvedev, as well as big-hitting Canadian Milos Raonic.

Second on both lists was 20-year-old American Sebastian Korda, who appears to be having a breakthrough year on the ATP Tour.

After losing the final to Hurkacz, Jannik Sinner said: “It has been a good week.

“Obviously I’m not here for making finals, I’m here to win tournaments. It’s going to be back to work and then we will see what I can do on the clay.”

“What I showed here [is] that I improved from the last tournament.

“Obviously when you get a little bit of confidence it’s a little bit easier, but you have to work hard to go deep in tournaments, especially in big tournaments.

“For me, improvement is the most important thing.”
