Jannik Sinner reacts to losing to Novak Djokovic in Monte Carlo

Rising Italian star Jannik SInner has admitted that he is struggling to understand the right situation in a match and that's something he hopes to improve going forward. On Wednesday, Sinner suffered a straight-loss against Novak Djokovic as the world No.

1 won 6-4 6-2 to reach the Monte Carlo Masters round-of-16. Djokovic lost his serve twice in the first set but claimed three breaks to win the opener. After struggling on his serve in the first set, Djokovic earned two breaks in the second set and lost no service games to book a straight-set win.

''I think the biggest part where I have to learn is to understand the right situations in every match, to don't go too much, don't go too slow, all the rest. It's trying to understand the situation. That's what I'm trying to do,'' Sinner said after the match, per Reem Abulleil.

Sinner was praised by Djokovic

“I think he’s very talented player,” Djokovic told reporters, per Tennis Majors. “He has established already himself at I feel like high level of the men’s game, playing Masters finals, winning already a couple of tournaments, for his age.

“I think what impresses me the most is his professionalism, his dedication to the everyday routines that he has to endure in order to play at such high level. I think this is why the consistency of his results is there.

For a young player like this, what we normally would see and expect is he got a couple of good weeks here and there, but the consistency is not there until the young player matures. “With him it’s different. He really has a good mindset.

He seems more mature for his age than the rest of the guys with the way he’s playing and training. He’s got a good tempo. From the baseline he makes the other guy feel he’s got to run a lot. I like his game. I think he has an all-around game. He can play equally well on all the surfaces, which he has proven”.
