Jannik Sinner and the black beast: “Daniil Medvedev is a big challenge for me.”

Jannik Sinner in an interview with official Atp channels revealed the most difficult opponent he has ever faced-Daniil Medvedev. The Russian is still an enigma for the Italian tennis player, who has always emerged defeated: “I see it as a very big challenge to play against Daniil Medvedev. That’s one of the reasons I train. He plays very far back. But these are the challenges for which when I come off the court, after the defeat, I try to prepare as best as I can to be ready for the next match.”

“It’s challenging to play against Daniil, it gives me a better understanding of my current level,” the Azure continued.

On Barcelona: “It’s an important tournament because there are new challenges, different conditions, different balls. The first round will be difficult for adaptation, but on the other hand playing more matches is important because I am playing well. I feel ready, we’ll see how it goes this round, I’ll try to do well with all the weapons I have.”
