How Jannik Sinner impressed Ivan Ljubicic

The former Croatian tennis player first expressed on the battle between Sinner and Djokovic: "It was a spectacular match. At the end of the second set I said that I was happy to see another set of this level, because the boys shot very hard and at a spectacular level throughout the match.

Excluding the moment in which Djokovic lost five consecutive points and consequently game and set, everything else was of the highest level. I'm curious to know if Nole was surprised by the consistency and continuity that Jannik showed." Ljubicic was impressed by the Italian tennis player's relationship with his team: "What impressed me was the involvement of Jannik's team after each point.

I had the feeling that they are aware of the level that Sinner has reached, but that there is a need to remind him every time. He looks at his team and they give him the confirmation he is looking for. There is very intense communication." The former world number 3 then added: "I was impressed by Jannik's continuity.

We know that when he plays well he is unplayable for everyone, even for Djokovic. The only moment of decline was perhaps the tiebreak of the second set, but otherwise he was perfect, always pushing, controlling the game and coming to the net when he served. He is ready to win the biggest tournaments."
