Jannik Sinner has just won his 9th ATP title, won in Beijing, and has reached fourth position in the world ranking, which no Italian since Adriano Panatta had been able to reach. The season, which comes to an end at the end of November, still has several commitments in store, which can bring further satisfaction to the Italian tennis player.

From the ATP Masters 1000s in Shanghai and Paris, to the ATP Finals in Turin, closing with the Davis Cup with his teammates, captained by Filippo Volandri.

His coach Simone Vagnozzi, together with Darren Cahill, are among the main architects of the Italian boy's improvements.

Sinner's coach: "Jannik is evolving on the technical side"

Here are Vagnozzi's words reported by SuperTennis: "Since we started work in February last year we have had this type of game in mind, this Jannik. We had the goal of improving some things to beat players like Medvedev, his bête noire.

On Wednesday, all the work of the last 17, 18 months came to fruition."

The results, clearly, are the result of a lot of work and commitment, but Jannik's growth is not over yet: "Jannik is evolving on the technical side and in the tactical management of the match, two aspects in which perhaps he could have been a little further behind But we must continue to work because the path is not yet complete."

Vagnozzi was keen to thank the president of the Italian tennis and padel federation, Angelo Binaghi, for his understanding towards Sinner, after his failure in the Davis Cup groups in Bologna: "I appreciated his words.

After the US Open we spoke with Volandri , Jannik had not finished the US Open in very good physical condition. He needed to take a break, to take some time to be able to finish the entire final phase of the season well, which for Jannik will end with the Davis Finals in Malaga."

Finally on the next match in Shanghai, where Sinner will make his debut on Saturday in the second round against Marcos Giron: "Coming from a won tournament and playing immediately after two days is not easy.

In Shanghai we will have to adapt to the new conditions as quickly as possible. Yesterday we having taken a day off, today we will go to train at the club. It won't be an easy match, but I think we have everything we need to do well."
