Jannik Sinner (24th) and Mackenzie McDonald (107th) will be the players who define the title of the Washington ATP 500 after defeating Jenson Brooksby and Kei Nishikori respectively.
Undoubtedly, the performance of the American is one of the biggest revelations of the tournament. With players like the Japanese himself, Rafael Nadal (4th) or Cameron Norrie (29th), the Piedmont native knew how to prevail and reach the final for the trophy.
At 26 years old and out of the Top 100, McDonald will play his first ATP final. The rival? One of the best players of the moment: Jannik Sinner. The Italian, although he is only 19 years old, already knows what it is to play finals.
In the last two years, the San Candido-born played three decisive matches, of which he won two: Sofia and Melbourne 1. The only loss was in the Miami Masters 1000 final at the hands of Hubert Hurkacz.
