Sky Sport’s focus, as per tradition, goes beyond news and current events. In the two new original productions, airing on Sky Sport channels, streaming on NOW and available on demand, the gaze rests on two great interpreters of modern tennis and, albeit in different years, protagonists of equally fascinating human and sporting paths: Jannik Sinner and Ivan Ljubicic.

The Italian champion, who arrives at the end of 2023 as No. 4 in the world rankings, è at the center of the special Jannik beyond tennis – Sinner a year later, a long and engaging interview by Sky Sport director Federico Ferri, conducted in the enchanting space of the Gallerie d’Italia of Intesa Sanpaolo, in Milan, curated by Nora Marra and edited by Giovanni Cintoli. Sinner, on the eve of his double date with the Finals, gives unpublished details of his sporting journey over the past 12 months, which have propelled him among the all-time great Italian tennis players.

Different, but equally intense, emotions will be offered by the documentary”Ljubo, the’man saved by tennis” , the original Sky Sport production that sketches the’incredible human and sporting story of Ivan Ljubicic, former world No. 3 and Roger Federer’s coach. More than 30 years later, Ljubicic returns with Sky Sport to Banja Luka, the town from which he fled in 1993 because of the war in the former Yugoslavia.
