London, 26 June 2022 – “Being in the top ten is an honor, I’ll try to do well”. On the eve of the debut at the 2022 edition of Wimbledon (Monday 27 June at 3.15 pm), Jannik Sinner is ready to try to win the first match of his career at the Championships. In front of him, however, the South Tyrolean will find an obstacle not to be underestimated as Stan Wawrinka, who beat him in the previous two: in the first round of the Us Open 2019 and in the semifinal in Antwerp of the same year. In short, despite the decline of the Pole – out of the top 250 in the world rankings – the 2001 class will be called upon to take nothing for granted.
The return after injury
After the knee injury he accused at Roland Garros, Sinner returned to the field in Eastbourne coming out in the round of 16 in three sets against Paul. “The preparation is going well, then playing a game is different. In Eastbourne it was a good first match. I feel better, the most important thing is to be happy and have fun on the pitch – the words of the blue player at Sky Sport – Cahill in my staff? I am very happy with my team and the people around me. I am calm, we work and we feel good together both on and off the pitch. We are working on the slice service that I need to improve. Darren told me I have a great slice, sometimes we even play games on that. Fun is part of tennis and everything is going well. “
“Berrettini from in favorites”
Among the favorites to the final success of Wimbledon, Sinner also sees Matteo Berrettini. “After the victory in Stuttgart and at Queen’s he is one of the favorites to win the tournament. I am happy that he is physically well, I wish him the best. There are many Italians and this is the best thing: to see different compatriots on the pitch every day. “.
