Jannik Sinner, here are all the records

Never anyone like him. Jannik Sinner adds another Italian record to his collection, becoming number 3 in the world in the ATP rankings. In case of defeat in the final in Rotterdam against de Minaur, it will be from Monday 26 February, while in case of success the South Tyrolean will overtake Daniil Medvedev as early as this Monday. Adriano Panatta, record holder ex aequo with Jannik at no. 4 since last October, has therefore been surpassed. No Italian in the Open era and in the computerized rankings had ever reached so high. The only one who had succeeded, before the advent of the ATP ranking as we know it today, was Nicola Pietrangeli, in 1959 and 1960.


Sinner becomes the 23rd youngest player in history to enter the top 3. The South Tyrolean reaches this milestone at 22 years and 6 months. The youngest top 3 in history are Andre Agassi (18 years, 6 months and 8 days), Bjorn Borg and Boris Becker (both 18 years, 6 months and 17 days), Rafael Nadal (19 years) and Carlos Alcaraz (19 years and 4 months). Overall, Agassi, Borg and Becker managed to enter the top 3 at 18, Nadal, Alcaraz and Wilander at 19, McEnroe, Djokovic, Sampras, Hewitt, Zverev, Safin and Edberg at 21, Roddick, Courier, Connors at 21, Lendl, Federer, Ferrero and Murray, at 22 Rios, Coria, Sinner, Moya, Kafelnikov, Vilas, Stich, Ivanisevic and Tsitsipas.


By winning Rotterdam, Sinner would increasingly become the Italian with the most titles in the Open era, with 12 tournaments won, two more than Adriano Panatta, stuck at ten. The blue won in Sofia (twice), the ATP 250 in Melbourne, Washington, Antwerp, Umag, Montpellier, Toronto, Beijing, Vienna and at the Australian Open. Sinner has had 14 consecutive victories in official matches since his defeat in the final of the Finals in Turin against Novak Djokovic, therefore not counting the successes in Kooyong’s performance. The one against Grieskpoor was the 201st ATP victory for Jannik, the first player born from 2000 onwards to have reached 200 successes on the circuit, ahead of Auger Aliassime (189), Alcaraz (161), Rune (102), Korda (100) and Musetti (96). Almost 5 years have passed since the first victory on the circuit: it was April 2019 when Sinner won in the first round in Budapest against the Hungarian Valkusz. From that day a long ascent began. Sinner was the seventh Italian to reach 200 successes in the Open era on the ATP circuit. Ahead of him in the rankings are Fabio Fognini (414), Adriano Panatta (395), Andreas Seppi (386), Corrado Barazzutti (320), Renzo Furlan (223) and Andrea Gaudenzi (219).
