Jannik Sinner: Rafael Nadal saw this coming.

Rafael Nadal predicted earlier this year that Jannik Sinner would win his first career Masters 1000 in 2023.

In an interview with ATP Tour channels in February, Nadal was clear about Sinner’s chances: “Who will win his first Masters 1000 this year? Sinner. He’s close by now, he’s young, he’s growing up and he has the right potential…why not,” the Manacor-based tennis player had said, hitting the prediction dead center.

In addition to Nadal, Lorenzo Musetti had also gotten the prediction right, answering the same question, “I think Jannik will win it because he deserves it, he is playing very well.”

Nadal and Jannik Sinner have faced each other three times in their careers, and the Spaniard 22 times winner of a Slam tournament has always come out on top.
