Jannik Sinner Rising to the Top: Djokovic Praises Young Tennis Star

A young man is currently the measure of all things in tennis: Jannik Sinner. The young star is currently going from success to success and is now number 2 in the world rankings. Only one is ahead of him in the ATP rankings. Novak Djokovic!

But even the Serb is currently raving about Sinner. In an interview with the French newspaper “L’Equipe”, the “Djoker” said: “Jannik is currently the best player in the world. He has only lost one match this year and has improved in all areas of his game.”

The Italian is moving better and is very mentally present, said Djokovic in the run-up to the tournament in Monte Carlo. “We have seen the difference in Jannik in important games over the last six months. He’s now also winning the big matches.”

Djokovic himself had to acknowledge Sinner’s superiority at the Australian Open when the Italian easily eliminated the Serb in the semi-finals. “He plays incredible tennis,” praises the “Djoker” of his opponent.

Djokovic also spoke about his new coach Nenad Zimonjic in another interview with “Eurosport”. “He has always been like an older brother to me, a mentor, a friend. Just someone who is always trying to help me.”

On Tuesday, Djokovic easily prevailed in the first game in Monte Carlo. On Thursday he made it to the quarterfinals against Lorenzo Musetti.

He failed against the Italian in the same place last year. Sinner is also in the last eight in the Principality.

Both are in action today: Novak Djokovic meets Wawrinka conqueror Alex de Minaur, Sinner meets Holger Rune.
