Former Davis Cup captain Barazzutti on Jannik Sinner: “Can become world number one, reminds of Agassi”

Former Davis Cup captain Corrado Barazzutti in an interview with Corriere dello Sport compared Jannik Sinner to Andre Agassi: “He reminds me of him. As a type of game, not as movements nor physical. Sinner is a player who in that comfort zone hits like I’ve never seen anyone hit. Great determination, but coupled with a great work culture. He knows that if he works he achieves the results he wants. His is talent supported by character and a strong head. I’ve said it before: Sinner is a predestined player.”

For the former Italian tennis player, the South Tyrolean is destined for great things: “He is a young man who has what it takes to become one of the strongest in the world. Not only that. To become number one in the world. In his comfort zone, near the baseline, forehand and backhand, he has less room for improvement because he is already among the best in the world. So the thing he can improve is to make even fewer mistakes. Quick hand, very quick feet, very good tennis.”

On details to improve: “He can serve and play at the net better than he does now. He is not a net player, but he needs to go for a comfortable volley. What he can do is improve the facets. How? By trying and trying again in practice and then in the match. That’s it, that’s where you get the improvement, trying without fear of losing an extra point or match. He said it: I want to try try try. Experiment, that’s how big improvements happen.”
