The words of Jannik Sinner

Jannik Sinner on the day after his triumph at the Australian Open spoke as per tradition from the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne: "Obviously there were a lot of emotions in my head right after match point: the hard work, the sacrifices I have made throughout my career and to share this moment with my team è was perhaps the most beautiful feeling I have had so far. These are great emotions. I was just happy; yesterday maybe I still couldn’t believe it, and now I’m starting to realize it, so è it’s a great feeling. È nice to be here, the weather è nice".

"At the beginning of a season, you never know what is going to happen and what is going on,” he adds, “But I felt quite prepared and ready to do well here. I honestly don&#39t think about matching Djokovic&#39s 10 titles. Nole plays in a different league. I am happy to have this trophy this year, then we will see what happens. There'è still a lot of work to do, but I&#39ll enjoy it, and then we&#39ll see what he can achieve in the future."

"My role model è has always been Federer, not only for his class, but for the way he handles himself: the important thing is to surround yourself with the best people and face everything with a smile", concluded the South Tyrolean, with the trophy in his arms and looking forward to meeting Thursday with President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella.
