Jannik Sinner and Hubert Hurkacz’s arrival at the Miami Masters 1000 final was a surprise in several ways. One of them is statistically.
The last time a tournament in this category, that is Masters 1000, had the presence of both players outside the Top 30 was in 2003. It happened in Paris-Bercy between Tim Henman (31st in that ranking) and Andrei Pavel (191).
Another of the brands that appeared to break because the Italian (31) and the Pole (37) will animate a final without being Top, but looking to be.
