Jannik Sinner will also be able to make a difference on grass, a surface over the years hostile to Italian tennis players, without having to distort his game. This is the opinion released by Paolo Bertolucci, in an analysis in the columns of Gazzetta dello Sport, who wanted to get off the hook about what the South Tyrolean could achieve this year in the tournaments he will play in Halle and, of course, Wimbledon.

In the wake of what he showed last year, with the semifinal reached in the London Slam, for the former tennis player, the player from San Candido will confirm the very good performance shown that allowed him to battle on equal terms with Novak Djokovic, then winner of the English competition.

"He has found in his serve a valuable ally and has now become a phenomenal 'rebounder,' second only to the best Nole within the Atp circuit. The serves have found perfect synchrony, not to mention the responsiveness of his feet, which has further emphasized all these characteristics," he pointed out.

Paolo Bertolucci also spoke about the prospects of the 22-year-old world number one at Wimbledon: "Jannik Sinner must hope for a better draw until the quarterfinals, that is, not to find any obstacles. Then of course surprises are always around the corner, especially on grass.

In the Slam events, best of 5 sets, there is time and a way to remedy things, as we have seen this year" he said, indicating Ben Shelton and - perhaps - Matteo Berrettini as the main loose cannons.

There is no lack of confidence around the Italian, who celebrated his arrival at the top of the ranking: "But his head is already projected to Halle: this first test will be able to reassure us" is what the former athlete from Forte dei Marmi and current commentator for Sky Sport underlined.

The Italian will have the chance to increase his haul: the Italian has certainly set his sights on Wimbledon, which will be the first tournament at Major level in which he will lead the draw as the first seed.
