Poland’s Hurkacz savours breakthrough victory at Miami Open

The 24-year-old downed Jannik Sinner 7-6(4), 6-4 in the men’s final as a handful of double-faults in the match proved costly for his 19-year-old Italian opponent. Hurkacz outlasted fierce competitors including fifth-ranked Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas and eighth-ranked Russian Andrey Rublev in the quarter- and semi-finals, respectively, en route to the biggest victory of his career, a triumph he was sure to savour. “I had a big belief in myself … Winning the tournament like this like gives you extra, I think, like motivation and self-confidence,” said Hurkacz, now 16th in the world.
