“Yeah, for sure. I mean, it has been a very positive month for me. Obviously disappointed about today. I woke up not in the best possible way. I felt a little bit sick, but we tried, you know, to go out of the courts, I mean, to go on the court, trying to give it a shot, give it a try. Unfortunately today was not my day,”

Jannik Sinner had a great run in the Miami Open 2023. This is the second time in his career that he reached the final of this ATP Masters 1000 tournament. This is also the third final in an ATP tournament he played this season.

After he defeated Carlos Alcaraz, it looked like that this time he can lay his claims on the Miami Open men’s singles title. However, it was not to be. The Italian thinks that heat and humid conditions could be responsible for his loss in the final at the hands of Daniil Medvedev.

No, it was not that bad. But, you know, with the heat, when you run a lot, it gets a little bit worse and worse. Obviously the first half an hour we played in the sun also. I think we both knew it already that the sun is something around till 2:15. When the rallies were long today, I was struggling the point or two points after. That’s a little bit,” he said.

But as I said, I don’t want to take away anything. I tried. We went out of the court and we believed, because if you step on the court, you have to believe trying to win. As I said, he played well today. He served well. I haven’t had many chances on the returning games. You know, I think also today we learned a lot for the next match. Is for me one of the toughest opponents, for sure. The head-to-head says it. Let’s see in the next match. Yeah, let’s see,”he added further.
