The former coach of the sisters Venus and Serena Williams, Rick Macci, through his social media accounts, where he usually shares his opinions on tennis, analyzed the improvements shown by Jannik Sinner in 2023. "Jannik will one day be ATP No.1.

This will happen very soon. He, Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic will alternate on the top step of the podium," wrote Macci. Meanwhile, Jannik practically confirmed during a recent interview that he will play in the Paris 2024 Olympics.

"For myself, but also for Italy. It is always a great honor to represent it," said Jannik. The Italian naturally mentioned his family when talking about himself, in particular his adoptive brother Marc: "He is perhaps the first best friend I have.

When you're in trouble he always tells you the truth. I am forever grateful to have a brother and even luckier that he is three years older than me”.

Janniks' improvements in the second half of 2023

Jannik Sinner showed clear improvements in the final part of 2023.

The Italian has reached the right level of technical, tactical, physical and mental maturation, achieving several prominent results. The first, which also made the entire Italian people rejoice, was the success in the Davis Cup, of which he became the absolute protagonist.

The first title in an ATP Masters 1000 in Toronto was also very important, in addition to the two ATP 500s in Vienna and Beijing, which made him acquire even more awareness of his abilities.

A few days before the start of the new season, the question that many of his fans are asking is: "Will he still be able to take a further step forward?" In 2023 only three tennis players have been able to do better than Jannik: Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev.
