Simone Vagnozzi, the current coach of the young Italian tennis player Jannik Sinner, gave an interview to the Italian Sport Mediaset website, in which he underlined the great progress made by his student during 2023. Vagnozzi also analyzed what the young Italian's real goals are, looking for to maintain a miraculous balance between dream and reality. "We all know Sinner's qualities, our goal was to reach the top eight in the world and we got there early by climbing to number four.

The most important thing is to see him improve technically, physically and mentally. He is becoming a man. With his qualities we always expect great results," he explained. Great help for Sinner's exploits was given by Darren Cahill.

The Australian coach, who collaborated with the Romanian Simona Halep who reached the number 1 position in the WTA ranking under his guidance, has been in the 2001 class team since June 2022.

"It's important that both Darren and I don't want to be in the headlines and he's a special person. He has a great CV but he entered on tiptoe. The credit goes to him," said Vagnozzi.

The coach continued talking about Jannik's possibility of becoming number 1 in the world rankings by declaring: "Jannik number one? Would be a dream.

My goal is to always improve as a coach and that stage would be important but not the only one." Vagnozzi concluded by talking about the possible celebrations following the victory of a Slam by his young student. "How would we celebrate a victory in a Slam? We haven't thought about it, we will think about it in due time, but I don't think we will do great things," said Vagnozzi.

The 2024 of the Italian tennis player Jannik Sinner will begin directly with the Kooyong Classic, an exhibition tournament that precedes the Australian Open, and then subsequently move towards the Melbourne Major, in which he will be the fourth seed and one of the favorites to win the final.
