Rome, Jannik Sinner sets his sights on target and unveils his biggest weapon
Jannik Sinner sets his sights and unveils his extra weapon
Jannik Sinner is in Rome hoping to improve on the quarterfinals he reached in 2022.The Italian tennis player will make his debut next Friday against the winner of the match between Australian Thanasi Kokkinakis and Spaniard Jaume Munar. “After Barcelona I stopped for a while, I used that time to recover, train hard and put a lot of gas in my body and now I feel I have enough. The last training sessions will be a little harder, then when we get closer to the match we will go lighter. So I have used this time to prepare myself and I am happy to start again from the Foro Italico,” are the Azzurro’s words to Sky.
The South Tyrolean aims to take another step forward: “I’m training well, I’m believing in it more and more, which is the most important thing. This year I will try to do better than last year here in Rome, I know the public cares a lot about all Italian tennis players. It’s always an honor for us, we play with a positive tension so I’m happy to be here and then we’ll see at the end of my career where I can get. You know me, I am very focused from the first point of the tournament.”
The public factor can be very important: “Playing in Italy gives a lot and something also clicked inside me from the Davis Cup experience where I started to express myself a little bit better with the public. Now the connection is very special. So this thing is an extra weapon that I can use especially here and I will. We all play a little bit together and I hope to do well.”
