The Miami Open has been a great tournament with a lot of big players and great matches to see. The moment had arrived with Jannick Sinner playing Grigori Dimitrov in the final. This is the battle between the young Italian superstar and the tough Bulgarian all rounder. This is the battle between World number 3 and World number 12. These are two of the best players in the tournament who have gone through all the competition to get to this moment.

Jannik Sinner has been having one of his best seasons in tennis so far after achieving his first ever grand slam at Melbourne. Sinner has been one of the most aggressive players in the game and he showed that in the semi final vs Daniil Medvedev where he beat him in two straight sets. Dimitrov might not be in the top 10 but he has proven in this tournament that his ability to cover every corner of the court makes him one of the toughest opponents to play against. This was massively proven when he was able to counter every offensive forehand from Alexander Zverev in the Semi Final.

Sinner dominates Dimitrov in Miami Open final

The first set belonged to Jannik Sinner as he was all over Dimitrov. Sinner gave no chance to the 32-year-old Bulgarian as he not only displayed his aggressive baseline shots, but was also able to counter every shot from him. The 22-year-old Italian went onto win the first set 6-3 putting his opponent on the backfoot.The second set was another one sided affair where Sinner continued to dominate Dimitrov and won the set 6-1 making it one of his fastest victories in tennis.

This was a completely one sided affair especially for a final. This was the first time we saw Grigor Dimitrov not able to move around and counter the naturally attacking game of Sinner. Sinner has once again shown why he is one of the upcoming talents to watch out for as he wins his 13th career title. In the end Sinner deserved to win this final as he looked really much in control of a slightly rusty looking Dimitrov. This might have not been the intense final we were expecting, but it has still been a great tournament which comfortably belonged to Sinner throughout.
