Jannik Sinner Djokovic

‘Jannik Sinner does not know fear,’ says respected Italian coach

Respected Italian coach Massimo Sartori says Jannik Sinner plays without fear, and that gives him a huge advantage.

Sinner is the highest-ranked teenager on the ATP Tour, and he has already started to win tournaments.

He also reached his first Masters level final last week in Miami before losing out on the title to Hubert Hurkacz.

Sartori, though, who has previously worked with Andreas Seppi and Marco Cecchinato, says there are things that set Sinner apart from the rest in terms of mentality.

“He has this extraordinary ability to learn, to create improvement even at the cost of changing [his] direction along the way,” Sartori told the Italian press.

“He is not a conservative, and if you propose to change something, he understands and grasps.

“In addition, Jannik Sinner does not know fear, which instead grips many other tennis players.”

Sinner is currently in a career-high position in the ATP rankings of 23, meaning he will be seeded at a Grand Slam for the first time at Roland Garros.
