Jannik Sinner Career
The young talent’s beginnings
Sinner was born in Innichen, South Tyrol, on August 16, 2001. Contrary to what one might think, tennis was not love at first sight: in fact, skiing was the first sport the young South Tyrolean played. He was only 4 years old when he began to try his hand at this sport, and in 2008 he became Italian junior champion in the giant slalom.
His passion for tennis developed later, but it was so strong that he had to leave his family and South Tyrol to continue to nurture it. He moves, then, to the Tennis Center of Bordighera in the province of Imperia, where he is taken under the protective wing of Riccardo Piatti, his current coach, along with Andrea Volpi.
In 2017 came the first key moment in Sinner’s sporting life in tennis with his entry, at just 16 years old, into the professional ranks. Two years later, he will prove he deserved it by becoming the first 2001 player in the world to win an Atp Challenger thanks to his success in the Bergamo tournament.
The first successes and the debut in the Slam circuit
In November 2019 comes another great success at the Next Gen Atp Finals in Milan. It is the opponent of the round to give even more value to the victory of Sinner. It is, in fact, the tennis player number 18 in the world and winner of three Atp titles in the season: the Australian Alex De Minaur. The young talent from South Tyrol will repeat at the Challenger of Ortisei, closing a record-breaking season with position number 78 in the world ranking.
After his first slam appearances in 2019 at Wimbledon and the Us Open, in January 2020 he also gets his first victory in one of the most prestigious tournaments on the circuit. At the Australian Open, in fact, Jannik Sinner enters the second round of the tournament by overcoming the Australian Max Purcell, before being defeated by the Hungarian Fucsovics.

Last October, however, at his first participation in the French Open, on the red clay of Roland Garros, he achieved an incredible qualification to the quarter-finals, becoming the youngest Italian tennis player ever to have gone this far in a slam tournament. After having eliminated in sequence Goffin, Bonzi, Coria and, in the round of 16, world number 7 Alexander Zverev, Jannik Sinner’s run at Roland Garros stopped only in front of the greatest of all on this surface: the thirteen-time champion of Paris, Rafael Nadal.
The first Atp victory
Sinner’s excellent 2020 was also and above all certified by his first victory in an Atp tournament at the Sofia Open. With his success in the final in three sets (6-4, 3-6, 7-6) against the Canadian Vasek Pospisil, at the age of 19 years, two months and 30 days, he became the youngest Italian tennis player to win an Atp title in the Open era, surpassing the previous record of Claudio Pistolesi, which had been held since 1987 when, on April 12 on the clay of Bari, he won the final against Fabrizio Cancellotti from Perugia at the age of 19 years and seven months. Of Jannik Sinner, Roger Federer, not exactly the last to arrive, said that in the field is a show and we will hear about it more and more often. Words that have the flavor of the blessing, especially if to pronounce them is one of the greatest of all time.
