Curiosities about Jannik Sinner
Sinner opened up about personal life and revealed some other very interesting details. The Italian first explained why he started playing tennis: “In skiing, you came out with a mistake. In football, a single player cannot make a difference.
In this sport, on the other hand, you are alone against each other: it is a mental battle, like in chess. You have to get into the opponent’s head. This is the true goal of tennis. In fact, the best tennis players are those who win even when playing badly.”
Then some curiosities: “Without the support of the family, all this would have been impossible. They taught me to be a normal and calm guy, outside the field I do nothing. I like to go karting, to do a barbecue and hang out with friends.
Pub and disco? No I have never been there. I’m not really the type. The family taught me to be a good person first, then a great professional. I started reading a lot this year: sports books like stories of Ibrahimovic, Lindsey Vonn and now I’ve moved on to LeBron. I especially like after dinner, if I’m tired, I fall asleep.”
