Jannik Sinner had a bad setback against the Argentine Francisco Cerundolo, in the match valid for the round of 16 of the Internazionali BNL d'Italia. This unexpected stop has also generated many comments among his fans and insiders, who have asked themselves several times, in the last 48 hours, what Sinner's true level was.
Will he really be able to aspire to important titles, like his very young colleagues Carlos Alcaraz, already winner of 4 Masters 1000 and 1 Slam, and Holger Rune, who can already boast the prestigious Paris Bercy tournament? Patrick Mouratoglou, former coach of many old legends of the Game, tried to answer this question: "I think if you analyze the situation technically, Jannik is not at the level of Carlos and Holger, but it might not be a bad thing.This means that he has more room for improvement.
However, the foundations of the Italian are such that they can allow him to win Grand Slam."
Sinner gets a defeat in Rome
Anyway, Sinner's season was still good, till now. From the title in Montpellier, to the finals played in Miami and Rotterdam.
Also worth mentioning are the excellent placements in Indian Wells and Monte-Carlo, where he finished just a few steps from the final act. In Rome, he got an abrupt which halt to the ambitions of the Italian, who after a good first phase of the season dreamed of the big shot in Rome, a tournament he particularly cares about.
In the aftermath of the disappointing elimination, the tennis player from San Candido entrusted social media with the means by which to vent his bitterness. The Italian number 1 explained: "A day like yesterday hurts, even more here in Rome.
But I know I have learned something and I will come back stronger than before. I don't want to forget all the positive moments of this year so far. I realize that it has been my best season so far, so there are no remorse or regrets, I'm going on!"
