Meanwhile, former English tennis star Tim Henman was recently spotted lauding Jannik Sinner after his great win over Dimitrov in the quarterfinal game. The legendary star feels that Sinner has been delivering some sensational performances, which makes him the new world number one. Notably, Novak Djokovic has withdrawn himself from the French Open 2024 fourth round owing to injuries that allowed Sinner to become the new world number one.

"Sinner put in a very solid performance. Coming through in straight sets against Sinner. I'm sure when he's at the side of the court when he's told the incredible news that Djokovic had to pull out, which is very sad first and foremost for him, but also for the tournament, the spectators and us as tennis fans," said Tim Henman.

Jannik Sinner has recently missed the Rome Masters 2024 and lost the crucial 1000 points

In addition, the 49-year-old feels that Sinner holds a lot of maturity and capability, which helps him beat the Serbian in the ATP rankings. The Oxford-born star calls Sinner "unstoppable." Notably, the Italian-born star has recently missed the Rome Masters 2024 and lost the crucial 1000 points. However, the 22-year-old star places himself in the top spot in the men's singles rankings despite missing the Italian Open 2024.

"The realisation that he is through to the semi-finals and is going to be world No. 1 on Monday just amazes me. His maturity seems to take everything in his stride. He seems to be able to choose the right words at the right moment. He's not going to want to stop. It's a great opportunity on Friday, but it's important he lets this moment sink in for the next 24 hours before he then focuses on his next match," he added further.
