The talent had been forced to forfeit the singles match against Croatia

There had been some concern about Jannik Sinner’s forfeit — replaced in his singles match by a brilliant Lorenzo Musetti — for the Davis Cup clash with Croatia, which the Azzurri then won easily with a clear 3-0 victory. Ankle discomfort – a legacy of the epic battle against Carlos Alcaraz at the US Open – forced the South Tyrolean to rest, which later proved to be only precautionary.

In fact, according to the latest information gathered, Sinner should regularly take the field for the following matches against Argentina and Sweden, scheduled between Friday and Saturday. A sigh of relief for both coach Filippo Volandri and the numerous fans of the talented Azzurro.

Jannik Sinner, born in San Candido on August 16, 2001, despite having achieved excellent results in skiing since childhood, decided at the age of 13 to devote himself exclusively to tennis, moving to Bordighera, at the court of Riccardo Piatti. A choice that will prove successful, as Sinner is the youngest Italian tennis player ever to enter the top 100 (October 2019) and to win an Atp title in the Open era (Sofia 2020). In addition, along with Matteo Berrettini, Jannik is the only Italian tennis player to have reached at least the round of 16 in all four Slams. For him, 2022 was the breakthrough year: he left Piatti to rely on Vagnozzi.
