When will there be a changing of the guard in men’s tennis?
As many of you know, I love tennis (playing and watching). Last weekend, we saw the young Jannik Sinner (22 years old) defeat Novak Djokovic en route to his first ever Major Title at the Australian Open. Sinner was already ranked #4 in the world and is not showing any signs of slowing down, so in the #CJJblog this week, I wanted to give you some things I have noticed about him that has lead to his success. I believe he will not only become the world’s #1 ranked men’s player, but will also win another major this year. What do you think?
- Team. Sinner notably changed his coach about one year ago and since then, has really refined his game. In my opinion, he has gone from good to great. What changes have you made to your team that has led to success?
- Mental health. He has mentioned in recent interviews that he has embraced more of the mental side of the game. Imagery has become a big part of his preparation.
- Toughness. Both physically and mentally. He has shown this by winning matches after falling behind two sets to none.
- Physical strength. Sinner is moving much better during his matches and has clearly improved his agility and athleticism.
- Serve. The growth in his serve is unmatched. Power, accuracy, everything has increased over the last year or so.
