Paolo Lorenzi: I like to practice with young Italians

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.
