Italian tennis veteran Paolo Lorenzi, 37, reveals he loves to practice with rising Italian stars. Lorenzi, who will turn 38 years on December 15, still isn't ready to call it a career as he thinks he still has something left in him.
World No. 116 Lorenzi had a chance to hang out and practice with world No. 8 Matteo Berrettini and Next Gen ATP Finals champion Jannik Sinner this year. "I always like to practise a lot with the young Italians because they have a lot of enthusiasm,” Lorenzi told the ATP Cup.
“I like to play with the young ones and I can know some good young Italians that are coming." Lorenzi turned professional in 2003 but enjoyed the best days of his career a few years ago as he claimed his maiden ATP title in 2016 and achieved a career-high ranking a year later.
The Italian earned his first ATP glory at the Generali Open in Kitzbuhel, before reaching a career-high ranking of No. 33 in the world in 2017.
