On Miami

“It’s always nice to come back to Miami! I have played there twice in the finals, and I’m looking forward to coming back again. Miami has this mix of being a relaxed city but also having a dynamic crowd, making it very enjoyable. Being in two Miami Open finals is definitely memorable.”

Off the Court

“I like to go to restaurants, eat, and relax with friends.”

On Animals

“I like the work of Animal Tracker. It is an app that allows you to follow the movements of wild animals in real-time all over the world.”

More on Sinner

Italian tennis prodigy Jannik Sinner, born in 2001, has quickly risen to prominence in the tennis world. He reached a career-high ranking of world No. 4 by the ATP, matching the record set by Adriano Panatta as the highest-ranked Italian male player.

In 2020, Jannik Sinner secured his first ATP title and broke into the top 40. He notably defeated top players like David Goffin and Stefanos Tsitsipas. By 2021, Sinner had clinched four titles, reached a Masters 1000 final, and debuted in the top 10. In 2022, he made three major quarterfinals and won his first clay court title. The following year, Sinner won his first Masters 1000 title at the 2023 Canadian Open and became world No. 4, and led Italy to victory in the Davis Cup. In 2024, he claimed his first major title by winning the Australian Open, defeating Novak Djokovic in the semifinals and Daniil Medvedev in the final, solidifying his status as a major champion.

Sinner’s journey began in South Tyrol, Italy, where he excelled in skiing, football, and tennis. Despite initial success in skiing, he chose to focus solely on tennis at age 13, relocating to Bordighera to train under coach Riccardo Piatti. His dedication and talent propelled him into the professional circuit, where he became one of the few players to win multiple ATP Challenger Tour titles at just 17 years old.

Despite limited success as a junior player, Sinner’s transition to the professional tour marked the beginning of a meteoric rise in tennis. His tenacity, skill, and strategic prowess have cemented his place among the sport’s elite, leading to historic triumphs on the ATP Tour and at Grand Slam events like the Australian Open.

Jannik Sinner, currently residing in Monte Carlo, Monaco, is a fan of A.C. Milan football club. His tennis idols include compatriot Andreas Seppi, Roger Federer, and Novak Djokovic. Sinner, raised in a German-speaking family, improved his Italian after relocating to Bordighera at age 13. He also speaks English fluently. Known for his healthy diet and conservative lifestyle, Sinner has a passion for cars.
