We prove that bilinear forms associated to the rough homogeneous singular integrals

TΩf(x) = p.v.df(x y)Ω( y |y|) |y|d,

where Ω Lq(Sd1) has vanishing average and 1 < q , and to Bochner–Riesz means at the critical index in d are dominated by sparse forms involving (1,p) averages. This domination is stronger than the weak-L1 estimates for TΩ and for Bochner–Riesz means, respectively due to Seeger and Christ. Furthermore, our domination theorems entail as a corollary new sharp quantitative Ap-weighted estimates for Bochner–Riesz means and for homogeneous singular integrals with unbounded angular part, extending previous results of Hytönen, Roncal and Tapiola for TΩ. Our results follow from a new abstract sparse domination principle which does not rely on weak endpoint estimates for maximal truncations.
