"I got up at 5 in the morning. It was far, far away” – Jannik Sinner explained. “I took two trains and two buses just to get there, more than two hours of round trip, the same thing on the way back. In total, almost four and a half hours. But I never complained and I never wanted to stop, it was part of my school education and the teachers always helped me to reconcile study and tennis", revealed the new champion of Halle.

A path, the school, never neglected, despite the different commitments in tennis that kept him away: "I did not go very often because of tennis tournaments. I took a lot of correspondence lessons and I went there mainly for homework and exams.

Also, that’s where I met my best friend. In general, I wanted to learn. And it’s in my character to see the glass half full, to take the positive from every situation. Also, I had good grades. Fortunately because my parents controlled," he explained.
