Jannik Sinner Facts

  1. He had started playing tennis and learning skiing from the age of just 3. He had also played a lot of soccer during his childhood. From the age of 8 until the age of 12, he was one of the best junior skiers in the country and had even won a national championship in the giant slalom at the age of just 8.
  2. While he was making waves in skiing, he had given up tennis for about a year but his father continually pushed him to re-focus his energies on tennis. Eventually, at the age of 13, he decided to give up both skiing and soccer in favor of tennis as he felt the urge to compete directly against an opponent (unlike in skiing) and have greater control over his decision making (unlike in soccer). He eventually left his family and moved to the town of Bordighera to train under renowned coaches Riccardo Piatti and Massimo Sartori, a decision that was fully backed by his parents.
  3. Jannik had won his first ATP Challenger title in February 2019 at the age of 17 years and 6 months. He had competed in that tournament with no prior match wins at the Challenger level. With the win, he had become the first person born in the 2000s to reach a Challenger final as well as the then youngest Italian to win a Challenger title.
  4. After winning his 3rd ATP Challenger title, in late 2019, he had broken into the ‘Top 80’ of the official ATP singles rankings for the first time. This had made him the youngest player in the year-end ‘Top 80’ since Rafael Nadal in 2003.
  5. When he had reached the quarterfinal of the 2020 French Open, he had become the youngest to do so in the men’s singles event since Novak Djokovic in 2006.
  6. When he won the 2020 Sofia Open, he had become the youngest player to win an ATP title since Kei Nishikori had done so in 2008.
