Jannik Sinner makes history as he becomes first Italian to reach huge milestone

He added: “I think that’s something very, very rare to see because he watched me playing, we changed the backhand a little bit also technically, because he said, ‘Look, if you do like this it might work better for you.’ And then you exchange whole things together, and you find the right way.”

“The same thing is with the slice. I go back not like all the other players who make the slice with the left hand up, but I go back like how I hit the backhand. So it’s also a little bit unorthodox style sometimes, but in his case, that’s the best for me.”

Sinner feels very fortunate, noting: “So I think the best thing what he is doing is that you know, he understands my point, and we find the right solution to make it happen. I can say only this because he also hasn’t changed anything, like, you know, he’s the same man as he was last year and now he’s the same one. He’s just not here, but it’s just amazing, and I feel very lucky to have him in my team.”
