Jannik Sinner and the chances of seeing him at the Davis Cup
“Berrettini and I have formed a bond of honor,” Sinner said.
Jannik Sinner spoke about the chances of seeing him in the Davis Cup finals, scheduled for Nov. 22-27 in Malaga.
Interviewed by ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport,’ the South Tyrolean tennis player spoke ahead of the important engagement, which will also feature Matteo Berrettini among the Italian players.
“Berrettini and I have not been in touch, but we had already formed a bond of honor and he knows that we care so much about the Davis Cup. We are trying this year to do well and to be ready, but first we have to get a lot of things right physically: I have to think about myself first, then I’m sure next year will be different,” explained the 2001-year-old.
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.
