Jannik Sinner - tennis star from South Tyrol
A portrait of the exceptional athlete from Sexten.
Jannik Sinner is currently on everyone’s lips among sports enthusiasts in South Tyrol. The young man from Sexten, born in 2001, played tennis for the first time at the age of 3. In his childhood, however, Sinner initially tried his hand at skiing. Soon, however, he concentrated on playing tennis, and at a professional level.
From 2015 onwards, he took part in several junior tournaments and then ITF tournaments and ATP Challenger Tours. This was followed by his first Challenger Tour title in Bergamo in 2019. His place in the world rankings also improved steadily as a result of these successes. In the same year, he also took part in the ATP Tour for the first time and in autumn came the first NextGen victory in Milan.
Game, set and match!
Since 2020, Sinner established himself more and more on the ATP Tour and was, for example, one of the youngest ATP winners in history. He also celebrated his first Grand Slam victory that year. Things continued to become better and better in 2021, with four tournament victories, the first Masters final and a rise into the top 10 of the world rankings.
In 2022 he reaches the quarterfinals in three Slams, reaches his 6th ATP title but due to a hand injury ends the year at 15th in the world rankings.
In 2023 he reaches the finals in Miami, semifinals in Wimbledon, and wins in Montpellier, Toronto, and Beijing, reaching 4th in the world rankings!
More successes are sure to come here!
