Coach Filippo Volandri, captain of Team Italy, is aware that he can count on a strong group and, during the presentation of the Awards of the Italian Olympic Committee, he expressed his opinion on Jannik Sinner and Matteo Berrettini.

Volandri analyzed the game of the young ATP No.4, and tried to give confidence to the former Wimbledon 2021 finalist. "Jannik Sinner feels better in indoor conditions, because his ball is not moved by the wind. Obviously if we are playing best-of-five sets on clay, there is still a lot of work to do.

But Jannik is progressing and doing great. Physical work is important: today we play a lot and there is little time available. It becomes essential to optimize times. Berrettini could postpone his return due to new foot problems? These are not the problems that are of concern.

Matteo is calm and is working well. Time passes and the results will come," explained Volandri.

Sinner shares beautiful words for Berrettini

Immediately after achieving a historic result with team Italy in the Davis Cup (second success, after 47 years - ed.) Jannik Sinner wanted to dedicate a thought to Matteo Berrettini.

The Wimbledon finalist withdrew the last part of the season due to the ankle injury suffered at the US Open, but supported his teammates personally, both during the group stage in Bologna and at the Finals in Malaga. "We knew we had an excellent group, we managed to put the pieces together.

Matteo Berrettini had a difficult season, but he came here and supported us. It's important to be a team, we're all happy to lift this special cup," said Sinner about Berrettini. Italy will try to impose itself many more times in the Davis Cup - it has the ability, and the hope is that Berrettini can contribute on the field to the next feat.

Coming back to talk about Sinner, the Italian (like his Spanish rival Carlitos Alcaraz) will come back officially on the court for the Australian Open 2024, without playing any matches before the Melbourne Major.
