"I think Jannik Sinner is a wonderful example for young people. Not that others aren't, but he has a particular way of doing things: he doesn't get excited when he wins and he doesn't make dramas when he loses. He does his job, he does what he says: the His greatest talent is to get to work. Jannik is like this, don't change his character and he will continue like this and this will take him very high. How high? We will see. He just won his first Slam and now he continues to win other tournaments."

Ivan Ljubicic, in an interview with Sky Sport, talked about who are the main favorites at the upcoming Wimbledon edition. Roger Federer's former coach analyzed the moments of Jannik Sinner, Carlos Alcaraz and Novak Djokovic above all, and how they will arrive at the London tournament. The 45-year-old's first considerations were for Jannik Sinner, the new number one in the world and recent winner of the ATP 500 in Halle, the only one to do so at the top of the rankings together with Roger Federer, a player that Ljubicic himself has coached since 2016 to 2022.

"Wimbledon is now just around the corner. Federer has won so many after conquering Halle. Let's see if it will be Sinner's turn too. Before Roland Garros there were so many question marks, especially from a physical point of view as regards Alcaraz, Sinner and Djokovic who was fine but didn't have the match pace. Now everything is different: it seems that Sinner and Alcaraz are doing very well and they are the favourites. Nole has had surgery but will try to be there: it would be a wonderful thing. But right now, my favorites are Jannik and Carlitos. The first three-four rounds will tell us what condition all the protagonists are in. If the best survive the first week, they will become increasingly favourites," he told.
