Jannik Sinner continues his training in Monte Carlo

Jannik Sinner’s physical training in Monte Carlo continues unabated. In fact, after the exciting journey that led him to climb all the way to the semifinals of the Wimbledon Tournament, the South Tyrolean tennis player has decided to take a break from tournaments in order to return on August 7 in Cincinnati, a tournament that will serve to reacquaint himself with the concrete ahead of the U.S. Open.

On Monday afternoon, Sinner wanted to treat fans to a short snippet of his busy day: the video, posted on his official Instagram profile and accompanied by the word “Working,” shows the San Candido native producing himself in a bordostrada shot, testifying to the great desire to boost physical endurance, an indispensable recuisite to confront the great champions of the racquet.

The post comes twenty-four hours after photos showed him in training, this time on the court, with Alexander Kjaer, on the concrete of the Monte Carlo Country Club. This was evidenced by a number of shots that were posted on the Norwegian’s Instagram profile over the weekend, amid smiles and posed photos at the end of work.

Sinner is thus working to become the third Italian to win a Grand Slam tournament in the men’s sphere: the only two before him were Nicola Pietrangeli, winner at Roland Garros in 1959 (defeating South African Ian Vermaak in the final) and in 1960 (last act with Chilean Luis Ayala), and Adriano Panatta who lifted the trophy in Paris in 1976, imposing himself over American Harold Solomon in 4 sets with the score of 6-1, 6-4, 4-6, 7-6.
