‘Even Emma Raducanu had a tougher draw at the US Open’ – Tennis fan reacts to Jannik Sinner’s journey to Wimbledon SF

Jannik Sinner’s seemingly easy road to the semifinals of the 2023 Wimbledon Championships has sparked debate among tennis fans.

After four previous Grand Slam quarter-final losses, Sinner advanced to his first Major semi-final after beating Roman Safiullin 6-4, 3-6, 6-2, 6-2 in two hours and 14 minutes. With his win, he became the youngest player to reach the semifinals of Wimbledon since 2007.

The Italian made it to the semi-finals of the grass-court Major without facing a single seed along the way. World No. 8 reached the final round with wins over Juan Manuel Cerundolo (World No. 111), Diego Schwartzman (World No. 98), Quentin Halys (World No. 79), Daniel Elahi Galan (World No. 85), world), and Safiullin (World No. 92).

One fan suggested that the opponents the Italian faced on his way to the semi-finals were more suited to the ATP 250 lineup than a Grand Slam.

«Please, this will be a weak run at 250 let alone a match….that’s a clay challenger painted on the grass,» the fan tweeted.

plssss this is going to be a weak run at 250 let alone a smash… it’s a turf game by a clay challenger. twitter.com/josemorgado/st…

Have a dream of drawing and not suffocating. Ranking of the players he faced:

«Even Emma Raducanu had a tougher draw at the US Open,» another user commented.

However, other fans pointed out that Sinner could not be held responsible if the players seeded in his draw, namely Casper Ruud, Taylor Fritz and Denis Shapovalov, all struggled at SW19.

«As if it was his fault, Ruud, Fritz and Shapovalov were trashed by players rated lower than 60,» one fan posted.

@josemorgado To be fair, a lot of these top-rated players are useless on the pitch. So Sinner would defeat them if they met.

@josemorgado Sinner had a draw on Challenge level. Alcaraz’s draw has hardly been tougher so far.
