Sport: It is the tournament which informs about the decay of Sinner. Casper Ruud wanted to meet Sinner in a possible quarter-final, but the Norwegian lost to Felix Auger-Aliassime on Tuesday. This means that Canadian Auger-Aliassime has a comfortable path to the semi-finals of the major tournament.

22-year-old Sinner was one of the favorites to go top in the Masters1000 tournament.

There was also Carlos Alcaraz, but he lost 1-2 to Andrej Rublev earlier on Wednesday. This means that the two highest seeded players are out of the tournament. Daniil Medvedev is the third seed and will play for a semi-final place.

Ruud was the fifth seed in the tournament and lost to Auger-Aliassime after seven straight victories without losing a single set.
