Head-to-Head


Mikael Ymer has a 1-0 record vs Jannik Sinner.

Ymer beat Sinner 6-3, 6-4 on indoor hard courts in Montpellier in February 2020.

It’s worth noting that while their rankings were very similar at the time, Sinner has subsequently broken into the top 20 while Ymer has dropped out of the top 100.

Jannik Sinner Form


Jannik Sinner broke into the top 100 in 2019 after winning three Challengers that season. He consolidated that breakthrough in 2020 by winning his first ATP Tour title and making the quarterfinals of the French Open, beating Alexander Zverev in the last 16.

So far in 2021, Sinner has done an excellent job of surpassing those achievements. He was unlucky to be ousted from the Australian Open in the first round, but won his second ATP Tour title in January. In March he made his first Masters 1000 Series final in Miami.

It’s not been a great clay-court season for Sinner, although he did reach the semifinals of the Barcelona Open. But the Italian did very well to weather the challenge of an inspired Pierre-Hugues Herbert in five sets in the first round before beating compatriot Gianluca Mager in four.

Mikael Ymer Form


Mikael Ymer made the third round of the Australian Open in January and has now matched that feat at the French Open for the first time. 

A first-round victory over Roberto Carballes Baena in five sets was followed by his first win over a top-20 player at a Grand Slam. 

Ymer did have a physical advantage over Gael Monfils, who was struggling with some injury, but he also had to keep a cool head in very difficult conditions and managed the match superbly for a 6-0, 2-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory.
