Paul Lugiato explicit on Jannik Sinner

That Jannik Sinner was a predestined was already clear when at the junior level he confirmed himself as one of the players to beat. Then the jump into the tennis of the big boys and legends was almost a natural transition where the South Tyrolean proved that he deserved the eighth place in the world in the ATP ranking.

These days, comments about Sinner have been wasted, as have comparisons with past greats. Paolo Lugiato, a long-time manager with international experience, has his own idea: “Fognini has said something sacrosanct in the past few days, namely that Jannik is destined to dominate the world scene in the coming years along with Alcaraz and Rune. Not only that but he is destined to trace the achievements of the legends of this sport. He has been compared to Lendl, but in my opinion he has better strokes and can truly become the number one in the world.”

“To me he reminds me a lot of Borg because of his unpredictability in his shots and in some ways the confidence in Djokovic’s game,” adds Lugiato. “Looking to the future, I think how lucky we are to be able to attend in Italy, in Turin at the PalaAlpitour, in November the Nitto ATP Finals, the top event in which the champions elect their Champion. The sacred monsters of the circuit will be there while Sinner strong from the Wimbledon semifinal and the results that should come from the appointments in Toronto, Cincinnati and the US Open, the last Slam of the year will be the Italian star present. For now he continues to train at the Monte Carlo Country Club with a few moments of relaxation and then recovered his energy, I am sure he will be a protagonist among the greats of the Planet. Right away.”
