You only go out to do your shopping, with gloves and with respect for the distances between one person and another. I try to follow a program, always at home in the morning I do exercises of mobility, stability, shoulders, to keep myself in shape.
In the afternoon I try to move more , there is a garage under the house, there is also my trainer who helps me to do the exercises " Sinner says he is also working with coach Riccardo Piatti through online methods. "At a distance we watch some matches on Tennis TV together even matches of a few years ago .
We write to each other, we try to get ideas and learn from there too " Sinner says he also plays some games online at PlayStation (his favourite game being FIFA) and speaks to his parents, brother and grandparents regularly.
