ATP Paris-Bercy, Jannik Sinner knocked out in two sets

With the loss he suffered against Marc-Andrea Huesler, Jannik Sinner ends his ATP season: the South Tyrolean was outlasted by the Swiss with a score of 6-2, 6-3.

Sinner, conditioned by some physical problems, seemed slow and predictable; the Swiss was adept at taking advantage of every chance and deservedly won passage to the round. Until now there had been only one previous meeting between the two dating back to the round of 16 of the 2020 Sofia tournament, an occasion when Sinner won in two sets 6-3 6-4.

Despite having achieved excellent results in skiing since childhood, at the age of 13 Jannik decided to devote himself exclusively to tennis, moving to Bordighera, at the court of Riccardo Piatti. It was a choice that would 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.
