A matter of hours and the Roland Garros will officially begin. There is great anticipation for the second Grand Slam of the year and for all its protagonists. We talked about world number one Carlos Alcaraz and Serbian tennis player Novak Djokovic, but not only.
In Italy the most awaited man is Jannik Sinner, still hunting for the first big success of his career. Despite this Jannik flies low and spoke about the expectations of him during this tournament. In these hours, the Italian athlete talked during an interview with Eurosport and revealed his impressions in view of the Parisian tournament.
Here are his words: "The Roland Garros is definitely an important tournament for me, it's the first time I've played a Grand Slam tournament where I've already reached the quarter-finals and it's definitely something different for me.
In the end, something changes every year but we are talking about a really important tournament, we hope to do well."
Jannik Sinner and the pressure issue
The tennis player then continued: "In tournaments like these you need experience, I've trained very well and I already feel that I'm playing better than in Rome.
I've found myself and I'm very happy with how I'm on the pitch, but I absolutely don't want pressure with this thing to win. I know my potential but I want to see round after round." Jannik Sinner is one of the strongest youngsters around, together with number one Carlos Alcaraz and the Danish Holger Rune.
Jannik was drawn in the bottom half of the draw and could only face Alcaraz in an eventual final. The Italian talked about Spanish and said: "It's certainly always difficult to play against Carlos but at the moment I have to think about other tennis players.
There's still time even if I hope to meet him again, let's see how it goes." Sinner is among the most awaited men and is found in the draw with the Russian Daniil Medvedev and precisely with Holger Rune or Casper Ruud. In the first round he will face Alexander Muller in an affordable match.
