New Grand Slam winner, Jannik Sinner triumphed on Sunday at the Australian Open after an exceptional fortnight. The Italian only confirmed that he was at the level to play the biggest titles, a nice response to those who said that he could not yet compete on a physical level. It was especially mentally that he dazzled by managing to remain calm after a failed start to the final for him.
Jannik Sinner continues to be talked about since his big victory at theAustralian Open. It is even the whole of Italy which propels him to the top whereas a few months ago, certain media criticized him for his absence in Davis Cup. But after a wait of almost 48 years for this country, it is time to celebrate. Moreover, some observers do not fail to let go a little since everyone is eager to know the rest of the story.
Tennis in evolution
Categorized as a player who hits very hard from his baseline without making many variations, Jannik Sinner proved that he had made the necessary progress to one day claim to win a Grand Slam. The Italian now has many more strings to his bow and it makes sense to find him in this position. “His ball striking from both ends. Facing him, you can’t choose to go forehand or backhand. At a certain speed, you get smashed. But, to beat the best, you have to be complete. But it is much more so than before. A year ago, you saw that he could progress in the second ball. He did it. He modified this shot, which is more compact. We also saw, especially at the Masters, that he wanted to come to the net more. I no longer put Stefanos Tsitsipas, Alexander Zverev or Rublev in the same category as him” states for example Arnaud Clémentfinalist at theAustralian Open 2001.

Not a stroke of luck
Sometimes it takes it to win big titles but the advent of Jannik Sinner is far from a fluke. The Italian has grown to an incredible extent over the past few months and he’s not stopping there any time soon. “I was in Turin to comment on his matches, especially those against Novak. I told myself that this guy was going to cause serious problems for everyone and that it wouldn’t be long before he was knocking on the door. I predicted he was going to win a Slam this year, whether it was this one or not. I think he will win many more Grand Slams in the years to come. Now that he has one, he’s going to be unstoppable.” coward Nick Kyrgioswho also commented onAustralian Open.
A little older than Carlos Alcaraz, Jannik Sinner has built a nice rivalry with the Spaniard in recent years. Beyond their matches which are always spectacular, the Italian can clearly compete with his young counterpart for the biggest titles on the circuit. Especially at this moment, Alcaraz is not in his best period and he is having a hard time resurfacing. So much so that some already imagine the Italian having a better career…
