ATP ace reflects on Novak Djokovic's status

Jannik Sinner is going through a great moment, perhaps the best in 2022. After a year marked by injuries, the young Italian talent arrived at Wimbledon without complexes and reached the round of 16 of the tournament. Now a great challenge awaits him against Alcaraz and there is great expectation for Sunday's game.

Meanwhile, the Italian tennis player gave an interesting interview in the Lavazza corner with journalists and spoke with former Italian tennis player Paolo Lorenzi on Sky microphones. It was a nice duet between the two tennis players, and Sinner made his "ideal" tennis player on a surface like grass, building hit after hit the perfect being.

From the big three to Sampras, great numbers for the young Italian who joked a lot with the former tennis player. A good-humoured Sinner talked about his ideal tennis player: there was no doubt about the best serve, Jannik's choice was the American John Isner, his last opponent at Wimbledon.

For the best forehand, Sinner chose Roger Federer, once again showing his great admiration for the Swiss player, while for the backhand he chose Novak Djokovic, clarifying: "I also like Wawrinka's backhand, but on grass the one from Nole is more effective.

For the net game, Jannik gave it a lot of thought and ultimately opted for a legend of the caliber of Pete Sampras. Mental strength, without a doubt for Sinner, who chose Rafa Nadal instead of him. In short, a true "perfect being"

Top seed and 20-time Grand Slam champion Novak Djokovic continues to make progress at Wimbledon 2022.

Djokovic is the clear favorite

"Before the tournament started, it was a dream for me to play against him. The fact that I can now have that opportunity, even that we can play on Center Court or Court 1 at Wimbledon, is something as beautiful as it is magical," said Tim van Rijthoven.

"I am a player who goes into every match thinking that I can win, I will also do so against Novak Djokovic if we finally meet, I will go to that match with the confidence that I can win the match." The Dutchman called Basilashvili "an unpredictable player" with streaks of really good form.

"Today's game was not like other game, I had an unpredictable player ahead of me, a player with streaks. Sometimes he can play very well, but there are other times when he can make too many unforced errors", quoted Tim van Rijthoven"

"For me, it was just about keeping the ball in play and getting him to play a lot of shots, giving him a chance to miss, basically."
