Hubert Hurkacz is undoubtedly one of the biggest revelations of the season. The Polish tennis player got a lot of satisfaction, he won his first Masters 1000 of his career in Miami, he beat the blue Jannik Sinner in the final.
Then he won the semifinal at Wimbledon and finally, in addition to finishing the season in the Top Ten, he made his debut at the ATP Finals. The young Pole talked about his season to Sport TVP's microphones and talked about many issues, from his future to Jannik Sinner and more.
Hurkacz talked about his season like this: "It has been a very good year, it's the truth. During these months I have often felt very good and I have achieved that regularity on the pitch that I have been looking for for a long time.
Hurkacz: "Jannik Sinner is the future of world tennis"
I am very satisfied with everything I have achieved in this 2021, I have won important titles and I participated in the ATP Finals. This year many things have changed, when I was in the Top 30 few recognized me, but with the advent of the results, interest in me also grew and I received the help of successful sponsors.
After Miami, I may have had a bit of pressure, but this success has given me a lot and has allowed me to overcome other barriers. I hope in 2022 to repeat this year's season. The Nitto ATP Finals? They are a different tournament from the others even if my coach tried to treat him like the others and reduce the tension.
There was a unique atmosphere and we received a different treatment than what happens in other tournaments. Injury? One day before my last match some Italian newspapers spoke saying that I was injured, but I was fine and my presence was never in doubt, I had my chances but Zverev did better.
The future of tennis? I cannot fail to mention Jannik Sinner, he is 20 years old and he can already play against anyone, he is in the Top Ten despite his young age. Besides him, there is Carlos Alcaraz who made a big leap this year. I believe both will be in charge of leading world tennis in the future."
