Jannik Sinner is the new young star of Italian and world men's tennis. In 2019 he achieved very positive improvements and some good results. Born on 2001 August 16th, he is the youngest Italian in history to win a Challenger tournament and one of the eleven players in the world to win at least two Challengers before they turned 18.
On hard-court Sinner is showing his best tennis, pleasant to watch and effective against opponents. In Bergamo and Lexington, he won his first two Challenger titles. But Sinner is also doing a good experience on the ATP Tour, where he reached the semi-finals in Antwerp, defeated by Stan Wawrinka.
Experience that will serve the young Italian for next season, where he will continue his rapid ascent. What is Sinner's secret? Perhaps Riccardo Piatti. The Italian coach, who previously collaborated with Novak Djokovic, Ivan Ljubičić, Richard Gasquet, Milos Raonic, Garbine Muguruza and currently with Borna Coric, can give experience and confidence in the tennis of the young Italian.
Under his tutelage and his training Sinner is getting and he will get the notions and the improvements in the near future to go up another step. Sinner's skills are already very good, but they need to be technically, tactically, physically and psychologically refined.
Who better than Piatti for this job? And to think that Jannik up to the age of 13 preferred skiing! Today, Italy has perhaps found a champion for years to come. The wave of pressure will be strong, but with Piatti and his team at his side, Sinner can already project himself into the future. He's already making waves at the ATP NextGen Finals in Milan.
