Jannik Sinner extends his ATP 500 winning streak to 19 consecutive victories. The Italian has been virtually flawless in tournaments of this category and has not suffered a defeat since a year ago at the same Halle Open, when he retired midway through the quarterfinal match against Alexander Bublik due to injury.
Since early 2023, he holds a record of 26-2 in ATP 500 matches, counting his withdrawal against Bublik due to muscle issues and the loss in the Rotterdam Open final in February 2023 against Daniil Medvedev.
The Italian will play the final of the Halle Open on Sunday, aiming for his first grass court title and fifth ATP 500 title. Sinner previously claimed the crown at the 2021 Washington Open, and began his streak with titles at the 2023 China Open, Vienna Open, and the 2024 Rotterdam Open, in addition to the four victories he achieved this week in Halle.
His opponent will be the Polish player Hubert Hurkacz, with whom he has a tied head-to-head record of 2-2. They have only met once in a final, back in the 2021 Miami Open, where Hurkacz defeated Sinner in straight sets. Hurkacz has eight career titles, with only one ATP 500 title, precisely won at the Halle Open two years ago.
