During the SuperTennis Awards ceremony, the Italian tennis star Jannik Sinner gave an exclusive interview just to the SuperTennis magazine. The young world No.4 talked about managing pressure and future goals. "It was good for us to take a break for a bit.
I went skiing and this brought me a lot of peace of mind. From tomorrow, however, we can start with normal life again: playing tennis and training. I think I grew both on and off the pitch. When you have experiences like that on the court, you also improve outside of competition.
I always feel the same, but as you move forward it's normal for a person to improve. Touring the Tour year after year makes you feel calmer. I feel like I've grown," said Sinner. Regarding Djokovic's disallowed match points, the Italian explained: "Since I left Malaga, honestly, I tried not to think about tennis for a week.
It did me good. It's over now, we're celebrating a great success but tomorrow we'll start thinking about the new season. The goal is to confirm my position. The pressure is an honor but it must be taken with a smile. The first thing to do is repeat a season as number four.
Next year will be difficult and full of new challenges, but I am happy to be in this position. We'll see how things go."
Awards and praise are not enough: Sinner is already thinking about 2024
Sinner is already thinking about next season.
The Italian took a short break after winning the Davis Cup, but now it's time to start preparing for 2024 tennis. It's impossible not to think about the chances of winning the Australian Open, because Sinner has shown he has the talent and skills to beat anyone.
And in the same way, it is extremely impossible not to think about the two victories obtained against Novak Djokovic: the first in the Green Group at the ATP Final. The second in the Davis Cup, canceling three consecutive match points.
