In short, Italian tennis is in a magical period, in the men’s circuit Jannik Sinner won his fourth tournament of the season and the fourteenth in his career, becoming the first tennis player after the eternal Roger Federer to win the ATP tournament of Halle from the world’s number one.

A radiant Jannik who does not stop and begins the preparation for Wimbledon in the best way. The blue dominates the Race and is expected in the Slam, maybe a confirmation after the triumphs in Australia.

Former tennis player and commentator Paolo Bertolucci commented on the victory of Jannik Sinner with a social post praising all the protagonists of Italian tennis.

Bertolucci then exalted both Jannik Sinner and the champions of doubles and also spoke of Lorenzo Musetti, protagonist of an excellent tournament at Queen’s where he reached his first final on grass in his career, first flash in this 2024.

Bertolucci wrote about the final lost by the young Italian, defeated by the American Tommy Paul.

An extraordinary week for Italian tennis that begins in the best way the phase of preparation for the Wimbledon tournament.

Jannik was able to withstand these pressures while maintaining the favour of the prediction and taking home the fourteenth title of his career. The fourth instead of his incredible season, after Australian Open, Rotterdam and Miami.

Thanks to this success the Italian has joined a very small group of legends, which have made the history of this sport. Sinner is in fact the eighth tennis player in the history of the sport to win the first ATP tournament after becoming the world number one.Like him, in chronological order, only Jimmy Connors, with the victory in Indianapolis (1974), Bjorn Borg in Monte-Carlo (1979), Mats Wilander in Palermo (1988), Stefan Edberg in Long Island (1990), Pete Sampras in Hong Kong (1993), Novak Djokovic in Montreal 2011, Andy Murray at the Nitto Atp Finals (2016), and finally our Jannik with success in Halle.
