Ricciardo Piatti has compered Jannik Sinner to Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal. World No. 31 Sinner will face Hubert Hurkacz in the final of the Miami Open.

“Roger Federer when he won Milan the first time is not the Roger Federer playing now and it’s the same for Djokovic and Rafa,” Piatti told “They’re improving a lot and they are changing a lot. I think Jannik has this kind of potential.

“(This final is) an important moment, but not the last moment. It’s part of what he needs to do. I’m very happy that it came now, but the season is long and the process is long. Of course, (the goal is) winning Slams and becoming No. 1. I spoke with him already that I already had two players, Milos Raonic and Ivan Ljubicic No. 3.

“Now the goal is different. I want someone (to achieve) more and this project started many years ago. It is not just what is going to (happen) tomorrow (in the Miami Open final).”
