The words of Goran Ivanisevic

For Goran Ivanisevic, as Novak Djokovic’s coach, the future of tennis is Jannik Sinner. “I’ve really been a big fan of his since he was a kid. He’s humble, immensely talented, and he’s growing up wonderfully. He is the future of tennis and can win any slam. Even against Nole in London: he played amazingly the first two sets. Then he was wrong to concede and back down in the third set. You can’t give Nole any breathing room. You have to finish him off right away.”

“Sinner or Berrettini? As a tennis fan, I prefer Jannik. Without a doubt. Because I like his tennis better. Matteo is great, he has a great serve, his slice is effective, he is beautiful to watch. But in my opinion Sinner will be even better. Jannik has outstanding response, forehand and backhand from the backcourt. If he goes to the net more and improves his volleys, he is at the top. He lacked that against Djokovic.”

“I’m very proud of myself, of winning Wimbledon 21 years ago, the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. But some important matches, semifinals and Slam finals, I lost them because I didn’t have the right mental balance. However, I am proud to have played against so many generations: from Borg, McEnroe, Connors and Lendl to Nadal and Federer. I have seen everything and everyone,” he concluded to Repubblica.
