Jannik Sinner reflects on 2021 season, speaks of future plans

Jannik Sinner, 20, was glad with how his 2021 season went but now wants to return to the practice field as admitted that he has a lot to improve. Sinner enjoyed a successful 2021, winning four ATP titles and breaking into the top-10 for the first time in his career.

Also, world No. 10 Sinner travelled to the ATP Finals as an alternate, where he made his debut after Matteo Berrettini withdrew due to an abdominal injury. "It’s the end of the 2021 season for me, thanks everyone for you support throughout this year, it’s been a great one.

As always there are many things to improve on but I’m so excited for next year and for what’s to come, see you all when I’m back on court in 2022," Sinner said in a Twitter post.

Sinner praised by Novak Djokovic, Marin Cilic

World No.

1 Djokovic said some of his characteristics from his youth he sees in Sinner. "Naturally, I somehow recognize parts of myself in someone, some characteristics that I had in my youth: confidence, self-belief, a great desire to win, passion and devotion for the sport.

I can see these in young (Carlos) Alcaraz, as well as in (Jannik) Sinner, and it was obvious in (Alexander) Zverev when he was coming up," Djokovic said. Cilic, who lost a tight battle to Sinner at the Davis Cup Finals, tipped the Italian to continue improving and getting better.

"Jannik, at his age, is already in the top 10. He's playing very well, he's having a great season. He's just going to keep getting better and better. How far can he go? No one knows. But he already has an incredible level.

These days you have to play really well in Grand Slams and be consistent to be a world No. 3. When I was in this position I had played for 12 months in an extraordinary way," Cilic said.
