Former Roger Federer's coach reveals who will win the US Open 2023

Ivan Ljubicic, former Top-10 of the ATP ranking and former historic coach of Roger Federer, made some interesting statements in an interview for Oasport, revealing who are the favorites for the final victory at the 2023 US Open.

The Croatian coach told: "Jannik Sinner has the mentality of a champion, this victory is important and it tastes like liberation for him." A few days have passed since Jannik Sinner's victory in the National Bank Open, ATP Masters 1000 in Toronto, and the comments on the great performance in Canada of the Italian number one continue.

Jannik showed great performance and he achieved his Best Ranking as number 6 in the world. Jannik was in his third final in an atp Masters 1000, he had lost the first two and in general he lost several chances in the final parts of important tournaments, but this time he made no mistake, and it wasn't easy, as Ljubicic agrees: "Against De Minaur wasn't easy, he's a difficult tennis player to face and we're talking about someone who makes you play badly."

There is now a great end to the season and Ljubicic is quite optimistic about his future: "If he's physically fit, he has to play in Cincinnati, Jannik is a tennis player who needs to play.

I wouldn't look at the standings also because I think the Atp Finals of Turin are already in five years." Cincinnati first and then the US Open, the last Grand Slam tournament of the season and the Croatian appeared optimistic about the chances of the Italian tennis player in New York: "Sinner can fight for victory at the US Open, he is one of those four players who stand apart from others in the Race." Ljubicic obviously refers to Carlos Alcaraz, Novak Djokovic, Daniil Medvedev and indeed Sinner.

For Roger Federer's former coach they are the four who will compete for the victory of the next title in Flushing Meadows, a much awaited tournament, among the last ones at the end of the year. Meanwhile in the second round in Cincinnati (he had the Bye in the first round) Jannik will face Serbian tennis player Dusan Lajovic, a tennis player who beat Francisco Cerundolo in the first round of the tournament. Now, rain permitting, the fans can't wait to see Sinner back on the court.
