After the hard effort to beat Matteo Berrettini in the second round, Jannik Sinner needed to collect one of those victories that could not disperse too much energy. The world’s number one got what he wanted by overwhelming Miomir Kecmanovic with a loud 6-1, 6-4, 6-2.

The Italian tennis player controlled the exchanges from the first to the last point and never went into trouble in his batting rounds. In the set that turned out slightly more balanced - the second - Sinner raised the level when he counted and put distance between himself and the opponent.

Jannik Sinner is very happy

Jannik Sinner did not have to struggle to defeat Miomir Kecmanovic in the third round of Wimbledon. The World number 1 is considered by many as the favorite for the final victory.

"I am happy. It’s been a really long day, so I’m really glad I started the match earlier than last time and ended in three sets.

I felt much better on the court, I’m really happy with my performance," Sinner said at a press conference before dwelling on the possible next opponent, namely one between Ben Shelton and Denis Shapovalov.

"We’ll watch the game both myself and my team. It’s something I like to do. It’s gonna be a little different because we’re talking about two left-handed players. My team will tell me what the keys to the game will be, but I will definitely watch it a bit. We always keep working, because it’s not just about this tournament but also about future ones. Of course we try a lot in practice, then when a match becomes easier I also do it during the game.

If you’re not comfortable doing something in practice, you’ll never be able to do it in the game. I also do a lot of gym to get stronger physically" . When asked about the way he handles waiting time on the field, Sinner replied, "We wait a long time, but it’s an honor to play at the Centre Court.

We can wait quietly. The match of Carlos Alcaraz ( defeated Frances Tiafoe in five sets, ed) was long, then the women’s ended in two sets. I was excited to get on the court. Alcaraz-Tiafoe? I saw a bit of a game. It was nice and high-level. Carlos raised the level in the fourth tie-break and then played better in the fifth, and that’s where it ended".
