Jannik Sinner is becoming one of the most pleasant realities of the ATP Tour. The young Italian talent won his first career title this year, also reaching the quarter-finals at the Roland Garros 2020, losing to Rafael Nadal.
And talking about the Spanish champion, here are some statements from the very young Italian talent regarding Rafa: "Rafael Nadal is superior in the head, he pulls very hard but above all he understands the decisive moments, he knows exactly what to do and when to do it.
It's really something else as a tennis player. What am I missing to get there? Well, the blows and the body, as well as the head, let's say a little bit of everything. The doctor said I still have to finish growing and developing.
The truth is that I have to improve myself in every aspect, both physically and mentally. It takes time to get there." On his passions Sinner said:" I like to go karting and play soccer every now and then. I cheer on AC Milan because my first roommate was an AC Milan fan and he also made me passionate as the days went by.
In general I also follow the chairs on Netflix and I believe that in Australia I will also take the PlayStation, being alone I don't mind so much. I eat and rest and when I can I take a walk."

Sinner said the words above on Rafael Nadal through the columns of Italian newspaper Corriere. Sinner he talked about some aspects of his life not only in tennis, from the relationship with his family to some of his goals up to Rafael Nadal, an opponent who beat him at Roland Garros in three sets.
Sinner on that occasion played an excellent match, but the King of Clay showed the reason for his nickname and on the land of Paris where he would later triumph he won with the result of 3 sets to 0.
