Tennis star warns about Jannik Sinner after Australian Open triumph

The Italian Jannik Sinner broke the Grand Slam spell and made history with his triumph at the Australian Open. A tennis colleague warns the competition.

“Now that he has won this tournament, he will be unstoppable. He shows his incredible maturity. He just won the biggest title of his life and yet he is so humble,” said Nick Kyrgios highly of Sinner.

Thanks to a furious comeback, the 22-year-old beat Daniil Medvedev in the final of the Australian Open 3:6, 3:6, 6:4, 6:4, 6:3, giving Italy its first major title since 48 years.

Sinner is “a really nice guy and you can tell that he has already set his sights on the next goal,” revealed Kyrgios, who himself was injured in Melbourne.

“He wants to continue playing these finals, he wants to continue to be successful at the Grand Slams. He is not satisfied,” the Australian warned the competition about the whiz kid.

Tennis: Jannik Sinner wants more

For Kyrgios it is clear that Sinner will have a decisive influence on the sport of tennis in the coming years. “He will be at the top of the world for a very long time,” predicted the 2022 Wimbledon finalist.

He had already seen Sinner’s success coming. “I predicted he would win a Slam in 2024 – whether in Australia or at the US Open,” Kyrgios said.

“I’ve seen that he has improved his serve and generally in general. Added to this is the maturity for his young age – that’s something I never had myself,” praised the 28-year-old.

Sinner is already in fourth place in the tennis world rankings behind Novak Djokovic, Carlos Alcaraz and Daniil Medvedev. “It’s a great moment for me and my team. But I know that I have to continue to develop if I want to have another chance to hold such a big trophy in my hands again. And I want that,” said After the victory Down Under, the South Tyroleans are already looking to the future.
