"To see the Davis Cup raised to the sky and to know that we are the strongest men’s national team in the world è a great pride. Jannik has just started his growth by entering the top five in the world. Today è the time has come to reach the top not only to be able to become number one, but to bring home a Slam Cup. Becauseé winning it I think is the most beautiful and exciting thing for those who play this sport…".

“Number 4 lo è Panatta was, I was, Sinner was. But è time to break the ice and go for number three, number two. Maybe number one. The nicest thing about Jannik è the ability to understand that he è is constantly growing. I spent a week training with him and I realized that he doesn’t feel like he has arrived, he knows that he has just started his journey".

"È it was extraordinary, I reached the top of a mountain after a beautiful path to get there – says the “Lioness”, as è nicknamed, recalling her victory at Roland Garros in 2010 -. È it was the biggest happiness of my career. But the trip è was the most beautiful thing I remember well. An unforgettable trip that I wish Jannik" now.

“Difficult to climb this mountain for us Italians? No, è difficult for everyone, not only for us Italians. Concentration and continuous going beyond one’s limits è what is needed today. And Jannik is never satisfied, he always wants to grow".
