The Halle Open is now in its final stages, as only two players remain on the list. The competition is considered a perfect opportunity to prepare for the third Grand Slam of the year. Wimbledon 2024 will begin on July 1st, and players from all over the world will showcase their talent and secure the ultimate prize.

Dominant Jannik Sinner

Italy’s Jannik Sinner produced a dominant display and secured his place in the Halle Open final. The 22-year-old is already regarded as one of the most highly-rated players in men’s tennis in the singles category, along with Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz.
Sinner is having a fabulous season. He has lifted three titles, including the Australian Open in January. In the final, he defeated Russia’s Daniil Medvedev in a five-set thriller with a score of 3-6, 3-6, 6-4, 6-4, 6-3.
Those consistent performances helped Sinner become the world number one in men’s tennis, replacing Serbia’s legendary tennis star Novak Djokovic at the top. On Friday, the San Candido-born star performed brilliantly as he defeated China’s Zhizhen Zhang in the semifinal. He registered the triumph in straight sets with a score of 6-4, 7-6.
By doing that, Sinner has now qualified for the fourth final this season, and it will be interesting to see how he performs on Sunday in a big match after winning all three finals this year.

Hubert Hurkacz produces upset

Poland’s Hubert Hurkacz produced a major upset, defeating Germany’s Alexander Zverev to secure a place in the competition's final.
The result is a surprising one considering that the current world number four was coming into the event after finishing the recently concluded French Open as a runner-up as he lost to Spain’s Carlos Alcaraz in the final in a five-set thriller with a score of 6–3, 2–6, 5–7, 6–1, 6–2.
Hurkacz was extremely impressive throughout the game. He produced 17 aces, 12 more than his opponent. He won the game in one hour and 35 minutes in straight sets with a score of 7-6, 6-4.
