Sinner’s head coach has hope

After Jannik Sinner’s success over Carlos Alcaraz in Umag, there is even more anticipation for the start of the U.S. Open, which begins in late August.

In this regard, the head coach of the South Tyrolean tennis player, Heribert Mayr, interviewed by Corriere del Veneto, had his say about the 2001 class’ chances in the last Slam of the year: “Sinner is strong on all surfaces. He won Umag against Alcaraz on clay, but if it wasn’t for the injury with Rublev he would have gone down in Roland Garros as well. And at Wimbledon we saw what he’s capable of on grass, in fact I say Sinner is mostly a grass player and I think he’s convinced of that too, thanks to Cahill. In America he can try for a breakthrough, Medvedev is the best on concrete, but Sinner is not inferior to him. He can try to win one of the two 1000s, and try, why not, the big hit at the US Open.”

“The Sinner from Umag, like the one from Wimbledon, is a player who has grown a lot on the technical level and in his attitude on the court. Today he technically varies a lot,” concluded the tennis player’s childhood coach.
