Jannik Sinner is very disappointed at the end of the round of 16 at the US Open 2023, in which he was unable to overcome cramps and Alexander Zverev on Arthur Ashe Stadium. The Italian released an analysis immediately after the elimination in which the strong disappointment for having lost another fight in 5 sets in New York naturally emerged.

He said in the press conference: "I went out a bit like last year. I honestly don't have many words, it's shot badly in some points. It's the little things that unfortunately make the difference. He served well, he played an excellent game.

It hurts." This time, compared to the previous year, the Italian had more than a few problems on a physical level: "I tried to do the best with what I had. Halfway through the first set I felt that I was struggling to serve, then I had the cramps a bit everywhere.

It wasn't easy to play, I tried. Even in the fifth I had my chances that I wasn't able to exploit."

Sinner is ready to throw himself towards his next commitments

The talented 22-year-old took stock of his adventure in the United States: "I like playing in America more and more.

I'm happy to please the crowd, the fans can give you a lot of energy, like in this match where they pushed me hard in the fifth set." On performance: "I've got the level now. I've had many good results this year. Let's try to look at what happened in a positive way, I think we're on the right track." Now the next number 7 in the ATP world ranking will return to Italy to make his contribution in the Davis Cup in Bologna: "I'm happy to play it. I'll have more time to prepare it at this point, unfortunately for me."
