South Tyrolean open-hearted about Davis Cup absence

Jannik Sinner has returned to talk after it was announced that he will be absent from the Davis Cup, where Italy will face the United States in the quarterfinals, due to an index finger injury.

“We are a united team and still very strong. I am so sorry not to be there, I will cheer from afar,” he said in an interview with ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’.

“It’s not good to deal with physical problems, because they prevent you from doing well what you love and training at your best. Compared to a year ago, I am a better player, but the goal is to mature further,” Sinner continued.

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.
