Jannik Sinner He won the most important victory of his fledgling career today, a victory that will soon become out of date. Against the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, number 6 in the world, who committed up to 58 unforced errors, the Italian offered a good part of his potential, strengthened by the hand of Riccardo Piatti. Italy has a fantastic generation, and Sinner, since Rome, already begins to carbure.
Sinner appeared before the media to talk about the patido and explain its evolution.
“When you are young, in a year you can improve many things. I think I have improved everything. Especially the serve. I served a little better today, changing the effect. Playing against Stefanos is never easy. Last year was my first test against a player Top-10, a little test. Today I knew I had the level to compete better against him. Obviously, it was a great game, and I’m very happy. “
Stefanos reaction and his ability to start over in the third.
“Obviously Stefanos is a very experienced player. I played against him last year here in Rome. I just wanted to play my tennis and move better. At first, I felt very good and knew it was his first match on clay. When I served for the match, I double-faulted and the tie-break could have gone either way. I tried to start strong in the third set. “
His opinion of Lorenzo Musetti, Wawrinka’s executioner, and of the Italian generation.
“I am very happy for him, I have seen his game on TV and he played very well. It has a very strong playing potential. It is difficult to play the whole game at the same level as the first set. He was in a situation that I was in last year, where the opponent doesn’t know you. If he plays like this against Nishikori, he can put him and anyone in trouble. Having so many good youngsters is fantastic for Italian tennis. “
