Victory in the ATP 250 tournament in Umag, both because of the way it came and the value of the opponent defeated in the final, may have been the turning point in Jannik Sinner’s season. The San Candido native proved his superiority, for the second time in a row, over the acknowledged rising star of world tennis, that Carlos Alcaraz who now no longer seems to be from another planet.

The first title of the season for the South Tyrolean – in his first ever triumph on clay on the ATP circuit – was greeted enthusiastically by a little bit of everyone. But some congratulations are certainly more special than others. “Congratulations Jannik, way to go,” AC Milan wrote on its Twitter profile. As is well known, Sinner is a passionate Rossoneri fan: something he did not fail to point out even at the Foro Italico when, after winning the derby against Fabio Fognini – ironically an Inter fan – he wrote ‘Forza Milan’ with a marker on the camera.
