Sinner won the first two sets, lost the third and finished fourth. " After the first two sets - commented Sinner as SuperTennis reports - the match got more complicated than I expected.

From a certain point on he played very well and it was not easy to contain him. I hope in the second round to raise my level of play and see what happens". First round of adaptation to the game conditions: "This is the grass, you can not always control everything.

He pushed, he took away my service and I struggled to get back. Finding my answer in the fourth set was positive".

The second round will be what everyone imagined at the time of the draw.

Against Matteo Berrettini: "It will be hard, said Jannik Sinner. He made a final (in 2021 lost by Novak Djokovic), he knows how to play on this surface. It will be a great challenge. Every day is different: let’s see what will happen".

Sinner is the world’s number 1 and number 1 seed in a Slam: "I think it’s a privilege to be in the position I’m in. Playing a number one Slam is a great feeling but in every match you start from zero to zero. And of course everyone wants to win".

Jannik Sinner is at Wimbledon as the first seeded player, thus making history for Italy as the first tennis player to reach the Cathedral as the top favorite, a player who has spoken of his great battles with another young man who came to battle with him for glory in the white sport.

"I cried after losing to him at the US Open. A little bit also at Roland Garros. There are times when you feel emotions you don’t want to express. In the locker room, when you’re in the car for a transfer, or even in the hotel room when you’re alone.”
