Jannik Sinner: The Rising Star Who Has Taken the Tennis World by Storm

“Jannik is currently the best player in the world. He has only lost one match,” said Djokovic in an interview with the French sports newspaper “L’Équipe” in the run-up to the Masters in Monte Carlo.

Compared to before, Sinner has “learned from his mistakes” and is now “winning the big games”.

The 22-year-old has always been able to play powerfully and aggressively, but in contrast to previous years he now makes fewer mistakes.

“From a technical and tactical point of view, this is a very big development. He plays incredible tennis,” Djokovic praised his competitor.

Djokovic stacks deep before Masters in Monte Carlo

Meanwhile, the 24-time Grand Slam winner piled deep before the start of the clay court season in his adopted home of Monaco.

Djokovic said at a press conference that he didn’t have high expectations of himself: “Because the way I played at the tournaments this year and also the results I achieved in Monaco in previous years were not particularly good.”

His focus is on being at his “performance peak” at the Olympic Games in Paris in the summer and finally winning the long-awaited gold medal there.

In Monte Carlo, Djokovic will be looked after by his new coach Nenad Zimonjic for the first time. “He’s always been like an older brother to me, a mentor, a friend. Just someone who always tries to help me,” Djokovic revealed in the Eurosport interview.

How well the new collaboration works will become clear in the coming weeks. For once, Djokovic is probably not the big favorite.
