Playing styles and prediction

Sinner continues to impress on the ATP tour after winning his first Masters 1000 title in Toronto. However the Italian will look to improve his results at Grand Slams after another disappointing exit at the US Open. Now Sinner will look to end the season on a high as he aims to qualify for the ATP Finals in his home country.

Evans will need to return smartly against the powerful serving of Sinner as the Brit looks to use the slice to create tactical errors from the Italian. Meanwhile Sinner will look to remain consistent on serve as he looks to use the forehand to dictate the tempo of the rallies. This will be a tough match for Evans who will look to produce a positive performance as he looks to keep building momentum ahead of the Davis Cup Finals.

Prediction: Sinner in straight sets.
