Jannik Sinner, the young promise of Italy that will be seen with Tsitsipas

The Italian, who plays the 1000 Masters of Rome with an invitation, is the tenth youngest player in history to win a match at the ATP circuit.


Jannik Sinner is one of the sensations of the 1000 Masters of Rome. The 17-year-old Italian tennis player, who competes in the Roman tournament with an invitation and who currently occupies the 263 position in the ATP standings, surpassed the American Steve Johnson by 1-6 on Sunday in his first round match, 6-1 and 7-5 in one hour and 51 minutes. Thus he became the tenth youngest player in history to win a match in the men's circuit.

Sinner, winner this year of the ATP Challenger of Bergamo, the M25 of Trento and Santa Margherita di Pula, made last April his debut in the ATP circuit after passing the previous round of the Hungarian Open, where he won in the first round the local Mate Valkusz but fell in the round of 16 before the Serbian Laslo Djere.

The young Italian, who comes from playing the final of the Prosperita Open of Ostrava (within the ATP Challenger Tour) will have a hard nut to crack in the second round, since he will face the Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas, seventh classified of the classification, eighth seed and recent finalist in the Mutua Madrid Open. We will see if Sinner gives the surprise again to continue to amaze Italian and world tennis.
