How much satisfaction Jannik Sinner is having. Thanks to yesterday’s success the number one in the world is the third Italian tennis player able to win on all three surfaces. Before him only Andreas Seppi, victorious in Eastbourne (grass), Belgrade (clay) and Moscow (hard court), and Lorenzo Sonego in Antalya (grass), Cagliari (clay) and Metz (hard court).

Important numbers that make the blue a complete sample, eclectic and versatile in any context of the court. There are 14 titles collected in his career by the South Tyrolean, who can boast 12 trophies on hard courts, his favorite surface and on which he built the most important successes, see Australian Open, Toronto and Miami.

Only one victory on earth, in Umag, in 2022. A score that can only be improved, perhaps already at the next Olympic Games in Paris.

Jannik Sinner is making history

Jannik Sinner and Hubert Hurkacz have never hidden the great esteem and friendship they have of each other. Yesterday the two tennis players competed yesterday in the final in Halle. The Azzurri won, defeating him after a very balanced match, decided only by two tie-breaks.

Jannik Sinner as only great champions can do, is already projected to the next challenge, the next great trophy to win. Wimbledon is definitely a very fascinating challenge. Last year the 22-year-old from Val Pusteria stopped only in the semifinals. Now Jannik comes to us with a different awareness: "It’s different this year at Wimbledon.

Now I have a week to prepare in the best way possible, I will go there soon enough. I will rest a couple of days and then I will be ready. My level has certainly risen on the grass in general.

I serve better and this helps me a lot on this surface. I’m also trying to play more aggressively. But Wimbledon is a different tournament and we’ll see what I can do there.

It’s always hard to say who is the favorite in a Grand Slam tournament. I’ll try my best," Sinner said at the press conference.
