Fritz, Sinner reach Miami Open quarterfinals with 2-set wins
MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Taylor Fritz and Jannik Sinner beat seeded opponents in straight sets Tuesday at the Miami Open to move into the quarterfinals.
No. 9 Fritz compiled twice as many winners, 22, as unforced errors, 11, and only dropped serve once during a 6-3, 6-4 victory over No. 7 Holger Rune.
That put Fritz, the highest-ranked American man, into his first quarterfinal in seven appearances at the hard-court tournament.
He will face either No. 1 Carlos Alcaraz or Australian Open semifinalist Tommy Paul next. Alcaraz is the defending champion in Miami.
No. 10 Sinner eliminated No. 6 Andrey Rublev 6-2, 6-4 and has yet to drop a set in the tournament.
Sinner's next opponent will be No. 26 Botic van de Zandschulp or unseeded Emil Ruusuvuori.
